Locals urged to be school governors

Hillingdon Council is using local people in a campaign to help plug a shortage of school governors.

To show how people of all backgrounds have potential to become a governor, it has recruited builders, office workers and emergency services staff. They are fronting a poster campaign to show ‘the type of people who could do the job’.

‘Anyone can volunteer to be a governor; they don’t need to be parents, know about education or be particular types of people, they just need to want to support schools,’ a spokeswoman explained.

The London council has around 170 posts vacant across its 88 schools.
