Governor Recruitment Roadshow Comes to Stevenage – 6th June, Daneshill House

Schools and Academies in the Stevenage area were rallied with the support of the Hertfordshire Association of School Governors (HASG) and Herts for Learning, to recruit people for their governing bodies. They held a Governor Recruitment Event last Saturday at the Council Offices in Stevenage Town Centre; and there are several other events which will take place throughout June in other areas across Hertfordshire.

The district of Stevenage has been identified as having recruitment problems currently, which is why HASG are delighted that the Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress, Councillor John Lloyd CC and Councillor Mrs Joan Lloyd and the local MP Stephen McPartland  supported this event, to raise the profile of the role and encourage people to volunteer.

Mike Scandrett, Chair of the Hertfordshire Association of School Governors stated…

Being a Governor is not just about attending meetings.  It is much more about being part of your local school and local community while making a contribution towards the development and learning of young people who are the citizens of tomorrow.  Governors are there to ensure that schools are run well, to shape their future and that children thrive and enjoy learning.  Being part of that is a reward in itself.  Be proud to be a Governor.  I am.

As a school governor you are part of the strategic leadership team for the school.  You will steer the school vision, aims and objectives, ensure financial best value and support and enable the staff to provide an excellent learning environment.  Could you be a school governor?

  • If you have the time and commitment to help improve the education of the pupils in your chosen school
  • If you are prepared to attend governors’ meetings and visit the school
  • If you are prepared to attend training to ensure that you fully understand your role

Then you would make an ideal school or academy governor!
