BDAT is a Diocesan Multi Academy Trust. We work with our schools to provide a network of support and challenge; working together we can achieve our vision of improved outcomes and results for our children and young people. We are looking for civic-minded and skilled individuals like you to champion and challenge our work. This is your chance to make a difference!
We are currently looking for new Governors within our schools.
Why become a governor:
Taking on a Governor role is not only a fantastic way to support our Academies, the teachers and students but it’s also a brilliant investment in your own development.
There are very few opportunities that allow you to both share your professional expertise and broaden your skills and experiences, all without attending a traditional training course.
What do we need from you?
We want your skills, strategic thinking and willingness to challenge and push us harder. We believe in effective and independent governance at Trust and local academy level.
We are looking for skills/expertise in finance, strategy, law, HR, data analysis, risk management, health and safety, and marketing. And we have scope for new governors in our academies.
Experience in the education sector would be a bonus but is certainly not essential. Joining one of our Local Governing Bodies would involve you in:
- 2-3 meetings per term, three terms a year – meetings take place at the academy and dates/times are scheduled around members’ availability as far as possible
- 2–3 classroom visits or similar per year during school hours. Occasional other events e.g. to meet parents or governors from other schools
