Appeal for Somerset School Governors

There's 3648 governor positions in Somerset and 409 of those are currently empty. Anyone can apply -whether you're a parent with a child at the school or a local who wants to be involved.

The School Governors' One-Stop Shop told Heart "School governing boards are made up of staff, parents and people from the community with an interest in education. No qualifications are required but you do need to be over 18. In terms of time, you need to commit 6 to 8 hours a month for meetings, but only during term time. In Somerset, most of the vacancies are for community governors although parents can still apply"
