We have vacancies for three co-opted Governors on our Board and are seeking applications from people residing in our local community who have a keen interest in the Federation.

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about the Federation’s aims, share its ethos and are willing to dedicate the time to be a critical friend who can help us achieve our goals. Modern governance is demanding and requires not only the highest levels of professional and personal integrity but also time to undertake continuous training and contribute to the work of the Board, its Committees and Link Governor roles.

We seek individuals who have an awareness of standards in public life, a determination to abide by them and the integrity to participate in collective decision-making in the best interests of the Federation.

Applicants will be able to demonstrate:
• An active interest in primary and / or secondary education
• A commitment to delivering academic excellence through innovation
• An ability to work positively in a team and debate issues in a constructive manner
• A commitment to promoting equality and diversity
• The capacity to shape, implement and monitor policy.

Skill areas and experience that would be of particular interest are:
• Law (education, employment, contract)
• Education management and governance (serving or former senior leaders of schools)
• PFI, site, building and facilities expertise, land use, school building design and ICT.
• Health and Safety expertise, both physical and emotional
• Marketing, PR and Communications
• Digital Economy and Social Media

We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented at Board level and it is a key objective that our Governing Board better represents the diverse communities it serves.

Applicants will undergo an initial screening process and a shortlist of candidates will be invited for interview by a panel comprising the Chair, Vice-Chair and Executive Headteacher.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 9:30am on Monday 25 September 2017.

Applications will only be accepted on the Governor Form and will need to emailed or posted to the Clerk of the Governing Board.
