Governor volunteers work together as a team to make a difference to the education and future life prospects of children and young people.

  5. 5. 06WHAT THE SCHOOLS SAY BECOMEAGOVERNOR.COM Volunteering as a School Governor is a great opportunity to challenge yourself. Use your skills in an exciting environment whilst making a positive contribution to the future of young people! Marketing is an area that school staff do not have the expertise or skills to really do effectively. Schools need to move with the times and become Marketing, PR and Media savvy. This is why volunteers with these skills would be a huge benefit to the development and progess of a school. - Headteacher - Grange Primary School For a small school such as ours, access to volunteers who have the ability to think outside the box in terms of getting the schools name out into the community is key. We are keen to appoint governors with marketing, PR and communication expertise who are able to help the school progress and develop. - Clerk - Breznett CE Primary School The skills you have can be transformational for a school. The reason I am interested in support with marketing is to have an expert eye helping us to view the market and understand trends and patterns. Being an independent special school we are interested in where our target group of potential students come from and how they find us. This would hep us focus better on how and where we would focus our marketing and budgets. Head Teacher - Holmewood School
