Becoming a school governor through Swansea University
About the role
‘Governors for Schools is delighted to be working in partnership with Swansea University. Together, we’ll support Swansea alumni to volunteer their skills on governing boards, improving education for children across England and Wales.
Governors for Schools and Governors Cymru
We’re working with Governors Cymru to support governors in Wales.
Governors Cymru is a unique, independent support service in Wales that provides a range of services for school governors. Their mission is to inspire and promote effective school governance so that all volunteer governors are well supported to deliver their many responsibilities.
Support for governors
Our training and resources are there to get you up to speed, so that you’re effective from your first day in the role. Your skills and experience will benefit a school – you don’t have to know all the acronyms by your first meeting. The majority of our volunteers are first time governors, and schools need this outside perspective to ensure robust decision making.
