Governor Vacancies

Hardmoor Early Years Centre is looking for new Governors to join the team.

Positions Available:                        LA Governor
Co-opted Governor                            Parent                                          Local Community 

Being a centre governor means being interested in getting the best early years education for the children at the centre. Governors can become involved in a range of centre matters.

They also provide a strong link between the centre and the local community, and an independent view to support the centre on long term development and improvement.

Governance boards meet on at least a termly basis and governors are also expected to get to know their centre through visits. There are a range of training opportunities available to help governors undertake their duties and develop their understanding of the key areas of centre management.

For further details and information, please contact:
