Become a Governor

Each school within Unity Schools Trust has its own Local Governing Council (or LGC), consisting of a range of Governors from all walks of life. The role of a Governor can be both challenging and rewarding, providing an opportunity to contribute skills and experience in a voluntary capacity in service of children and young people. The role provides an opportunity to make a real difference to the educational outcomes of our students and to support school leaders in promoting the vision and outreach of the school into the local community.

UST welcomes expressions of interest from individuals who are keen to volunteer in this capacity. Please complete the Skills Audit Form that you will find on this page and return it to
