‘Tis the season to be jolly…thankful for school governor volunteers!

The fairy lights are twinkling, Christmas party plans are in full swing, and professionals across the country are starting to look forward to a very well deserved break. It’s the perfect time to take a moment to celebrate every brilliant school governor volunteer that signed up with Inspiring Governance this year – and to encourage colleagues, friends and family to consider getting involved!

School governors play a vital role in leading schools as they set the strategic vision and direction, approve the budget and hold the senior leadership team to account. At this time of year, the rewarding feeling that comes from volunteering in education and making this difference should rightly sparkle like the star atop the Christmas tree, and we celebrate everyone that volunteers to help children and young people get the best education experience in their local school.

Are you interested in finding out more about the role? You are invited to join us for a free online session on Wednesday 25th January, 12-1 to find out more about becoming a school governor, and the personal and leadership development benefits it can bring. Come and hear from the team, as well as current volunteers who will discuss their own positive experiences of being school governors themselves, and what they have gained from their experiences. You can register below – we look forward to seeing you there!

Until then, we would like to send a huge festive thank you to every brilliant governor who has given their time and expertise. From all of us here at Inspiring Governance, we wish you as many mince pies as you can manage and a very peaceful and restful Christmas break. See you in January! 🌟
