We currently have vacancies for a Parent Governor and two Appointed Governors.
Being a Governor can be a very worthwhile experience. Governors are the representatives of the local community and guide and assist the College in the provision of the best education for the students.
Being a Governor would mean that you attend meetings three times a year (once every term) together with any training evenings. There is some preparation and reading that is to be undertaken prior to the meetings and an agenda will be sent in advance of those meetings. You will be required to make visits to the school and meet with the Heads of Faculties and visit any faculty you wish. The Launceston College Multi Academy Trust together with outside agencies will provide as much help as possible through a programme of events and training.
The term of office is for four years and you are, of course, free to resign at any time.
I hope that you will give careful consideration to taking an active part in the Governing Body by applying to become a governor.
If you would be interested in taking up the position of governor please e-mail Gemma Bungay on email@example.com, by 9am on Monday 8th October 2018.
If more applications are received than vacancies available, there will be an election by secret ballot of all parents within a week of the closing date. If there are no nominations the Governing Body will co-opt to fill the vacancy.
All appointments are subject to approval by the MAT Board.
