Being a School or Academy Governor carries with it a lot of responsibility and we understand that Governors undertake their roles on a voluntary basis and may not have experience of HR or employment matters.
As a Governor you may be asked to become involved in a number of HR procedures at your school or academy e.g. disciplinary, recruitment, redundancy, grievance and capability to name a few.
