Governance Recruitment

We are seeking to appoint new governors for our School Governing Boards. Join us and help make a positive difference to Cheviot Learning Trust’s children and young people!

At the heart of all of our schools is a team of school governors who are part of the School Governing Board (SGB). Whilst it is our Trustees who are ultimately responsible for the Trust, they firmly believe that our schools need School Governing Boards to support and act as the ‘critical friend’ to senior leaders. In short, governors are the eyes and ears of the Board!  

The Learning Trust has a relentless drive to challenge, develop and innovate to ensure that each school’s provision enables students to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We are recruiting potential Governors who share the same vision and values, as well as the time and commitment to help us on our journey. Whilst we seek a diverse range of governance volunteers, we would be especially interested to hear from you if you have knowledge and experience of special educational needs. 

Being a Governor is a challenging but hugely rewarding role and it will give you the chance to make a real difference to young people, give something back to your local community and use and develop your skills in a board-level environment. Our recruitment pack will tell you more about the role.

Everyone on Board

We support Inspiring Governance’s ‘Everyone on Board’ campaign. Watch the Everyone on Board video on their Youtube channel to hear what inspired other governance volunteers to get on board and the benefits they get from their role.

The campaign highlights that people of colour and young people are often underrepresented as governors. We aim to ensure diverse voices are heard and contribute to decision-making in our Trust so, if you have the skills and commitment to help develop our future generations, then why not get on board with us as a governance volunteer?
