So, what does being a Governor entail?

As a Governor at Newfriars College, your core mission is to support and challenge our College and Trust leaders. You'll be at the forefront of decisions that directly impact students, ensuring they align with the strategic vision of the College and Trust. Your responsibilities encompass areas like educational standards, provision, and operational functions outlined in the Scheme of Delegation.

Becoming a College governor isn't just a title – it's an opportunity to make a tangible difference in the life of our college. Collaborate with the Principal, Newfriars college staff, and fellow governors to create a challenging and supportive environment for our young people.

What's the commitment? College Governors typically attend 1-2 meetings per term, each lasting no more than two hours. Actively contribute during these sessions, visit the College to understand its daily life, champion the College in the local community, and familiarize yourself with governance policies. Don't worry – relevant training and meetings are provided to enhance your knowledge of the College and the world of education.

What's in it for you? Being a Governor isn't just a role; it's a privileged and responsible position that truly matters. Make a lasting impact on the local community and play a crucial role in benefiting all College stakeholders. Develop new skills, practice existing ones, and engage with like-minded individuals passionate about improving the lives of our young people.

Step into a role that goes beyond a title – become a Newfriars College Governor and contribute to a brighter future!
