One of the strategic goals of the University is Social Responsibility. Under this goal, it established an initiative to engage more staff to support the strategic development of state schools in its most local communities by volunteering as School Governors.
The initiative: helps staff find volunteering placements as governors in local schools through a unique HE partnership with the national SGOSS: Governors for Schools charity; provides a network for staff working as governors to share best practice, support each other and act as positive ambassadors for the University’s work with schools and colleges.
The University exceeded its five year plan to grow staff Governors by 50% in the first year alone. 125 staff are now making a difference to the strategic development of local state schools from an initial baseline of 52.
An independent assessment by Viewforth Consulting also demonstrated this was creating an economic value of £0.75 million per annum.
