Could you be a governor in a controlled school?

Applications are now open for those interested in becoming a Governor in a controlled school.

The controlled sector is the largest, most diverse education sector comprising 49% of all schools across all phases: nursery, special, primary, secondary, grammar, integrated & Irish-medium schools.  Controlled schools are #OpenToAll, welcoming children and young people of all faiths and now, richly diverse and inclusive, reflective of and embedded in the communities they serve.  Governors have an important role in developing and leading ethos in controlled schools.
