SGOSS has helped find placements for thousands of school governor volunteers, who have taken the opportunity to get more involved in their community, add value to local education and develop their skills along the way.
“If you have a genuine desire to make a difference, then definitely apply. You have to be prepared to give up some of your time for free but if you want to do it, the reward of making a difference to the children in your local community far outweighs the requirement to provide your free time.”
“Personally it’s been good to volunteer within an area that is important to me. I have learned a lot – not least about SEN funding! I’ve also been able to network with a different variety of professionals, people outside of my usual range of contacts who I may never have come across otherwise."
