We are seeking new Community Governors

Published on 29/04/20

Could you use your professional skills to support Hope Valley College?

Hope Valley College has a proud history at the heart of the local community. It has served local people for generations, providing a rounded education in a friendly and supportive environment.

Now it is turning to the local community for support in the next stage of its development. In September it joined Chorus Education Trust and, since then, a Transition Board has had responsibility for governance, primarily focused on resolving the issues highlighted in the 2017 Ofsted report.

The aim is to have a new Local Governing Body (LBG) in place soon, who will shadow the Transition Board until some point in the autumn term when they officially take over. This provides new governors with the rare opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues before taking on responsibility for governance.

As part of this process, the college and Chorus Education Trust are seeking to appoint new Community Governors onto the new LGB.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 on Tuesday 19 May 2020.
