Application Process

Those applying to be a school governor have to be interested in education and have a commitment to the work of the school.  Although applicants do not need particular skills or experience to be eligible to be a school governor it is desirable that members have a range of competences, skills and experience to enable them to make a positive contribution to the governance of the school.

New applications are always invited for Education Authority (EA) and Department of Education (DE) school governor positions.

The links below provide the application form and guidance notes for a person interested in becoming an EA or DE representative on a Board of Governors.
