Governing Body – Vacancies

Partnership Governor Vacancy

The Governing Body of Belper School and Sixth Form Centre is seeking nominations for a Partnership Governor to take up a term of office for four years from 25 September 2018.

Partnership Governors are appointed by the governing body, which must seek nominations from the parents/carers/legal guardians of registered students at the school and such others in the community as it considers appropriate.  Individuals are only eligible to be nominated if the person nominating them believes that they have the skills needed to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

There are some restrictions about who is eligible to serve in this category: parents/carers/legal guardians of students at the school, anyone eligible to be a staff governor, elected members of the LA, employees of the LA in posts connected with education functions or registered pupils, are not eligible for appointment as a partnership governor.

The School requires that nominees have the desirable governor competencies as adopted by the Governing Body and the preferable skills of local business links, knowledge of the regional economy and experience of board management.
