Today we are excited to launch our new ‘It’s About Time’ campaign, where we will be challenging those who are looking to make a positive change in their life in 2019 to sign-up to Inspiring Governance and begin the process of becoming a school governor/trustee.
School governance is the perfect opportunity to put our spare time (and our skills) to good use, giving us the chance to have a positive impact on the lives of young people, improve our local schools, and develop ourselves personally. With research showing so much of our time is being spent surfing the internet, watching box-sets, or procrastinating it can be easy to forget the huge difference we can make with our time. For example, The Telegraph found recently that Brits spends 24 hours per week on their smartphone.
Having recently launched our Refer a Friend campaign, this is another opportunity for us here at Inspiring Governance to encourage skilled and enthusiastic volunteers to get involved with school governance. And the personal and professional benefits are huge compared with the relatively short amount of time per month that a governor gives. As a recent National Governance Association survey cites, governors themselves find the role ‘exciting’, ’challenging’, ‘enriching’ and ‘rewarding’.
So, if you’re looking to use your spare time to make 2019 more fulfilling and would like to see the benefits that school governance can offer then don’t hesitate – sign-up to Inspiring Governance today.
