Event description

Description

Governors for Schools is inviting those working within higher education to attend our upcoming event in London, highlighting the benefits of encouraging staff and alumni to take on the role of school governor. This event will be especially useful to those working within Widening Participation, HR, Volunteer and Alumni Engagement.

At Governors for Schools we are fortunate to enjoy close working relationships with a number of Universities across London and the South-East. We are now inviting more universities to work with us to encourage staff and/or alumni to become school governors and help drive improvement in educational outcomes within local communities.

Universities are wonderful partners to promote the role of school governors due to their standing in local communities and the breadth of skills and knowledge contained within their staff bodies. Our flagship relationship with the University of Manchester for instance has led to the appointment of 200 staff governors from within the University and their School Governor Initiative has been recognised nationally for the impact it has had on schools across Greater Manchester.

The event on Wednesday 8th May will feature Silje Anderson, who leads the School Governor Network at Imperial College London, talking about how they have approached organising their own network as well as a staff member from a London University talking about their own role as a school governor. This will be followed by a workshop looking at the practical steps required to embed a governor network within the University and how we at Governors for Schools can help you with this.

You will leave this event with practical steps to develop a governor network, including engagement activities and reporting on impact.

If you have any questions, please contact William Durham, London Team Leader at Governors for Schools
