Each school has a Local Governing Board which plays a crucial part of every school’s success. They work in partnership with the leadership teams to define the vision, oversee the effective delivery of the improvement plans and have a critical role in ensuring strong performance and accountability.

As a charity and company limited by guarantee, the Brighter Futures Learning Partnership Trust Board ensures that all legal and statutory responsibilities are carried out. It has a duty to ensure that the Trust fulfils its overarching aims and objectives. The Board members have a wide set of leadership skills in education, business and finance, many of whom have served as governors. The Chair of the Trust is an experienced Trustee who has extensive experience in both finance and the charitable sector.  The Chair also has significant experience of creating and leading Multi-Academy Trusts.”

Being a governor is a hugely rewarding form of voluntary work and many of the skills developed are transferable to your professional life as well as making a difference to young people in our local communities. If you are interested in joining our highly effective team you should contact, in the first instance, Mrs Carole Keogan PA to the CEO of the Brighter Futures Learning Partnership Trust, who will be pleased to set up a meeting.

All our governors have access to a high quality training programme and support to fulfil their role effectively. Although there is no requirement to have a particular skillset we are keen to appoint governors who have experience of finance, law and education. You will be expected to attend four Board meetings each year and to sit on at least one committee.
