Who can become a Trustee or Governor?
Almost anyone over 18 years of age can become a governor or trustee. There are no particular qualifications or requirements, other than a willingness to give time to the role and a capacity for working with other people.
What is important to the role is a specific working skill set relevant to the team (HR, data analysis, finance, project management) and the ability to give a time commitment to the position.
Finally, there are vetting checks (such as an enhanced DBS check) which need to take place before you can be appointed, in line with legislation to keep children safe in education.
