Becoming a Director or Local Governor

From time to time we have vacancies for non-executive directors/trustees to join the Trust Board and for local governors to join the Local Governing Committees of our individual academies.  Both roles are voluntary, although individual are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust's Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.
The roles of director at trust level and local governor at school level have a different emphasis but both work together to enable our children and young people to have the best start in life and be well prepared for the next stage in their lives.
Our governance structure explains more about the roles of director and local governor within NEAT.
#JoinThe250k is a national campaign from Inspiring Governance aiming to attract people to volunteer as school governors or trustees. You can watch their film which features young people explaining the benefits of being a governor/trustee, challenging myths about who can govern and sharing how to get involved.
Non-executive director vacancies
There are no vacancies currently for non-executive directors to join the board.

Local governor vacancies
We currently have vacancies for three local governors appointed by the trust to sit on the local governing body of Benfield School.
Other governors are elected by parents and staff or co-opted directly by the local governing body.
