We are now recruiting skilful volunteers to serve as governors in primary schools, secondary schools and academy trusts across Devon.

You don’t need lots of experience and you don’t need to be a parent. All we ask is that you value Church of England education, share our passion for making our schools the best they can be and have the commitment and skills needed as a governor.

As a governor, you’ll get the opportunity to lead, serve and develop to make a positive difference to the educational experiences and outcomes of children and young people. There is nothing more satisfying and we’ll support you every step of the way.
