LOCAL GOVERNORS

To help us achieve our ambitions for our academies, Dudley Academies Trust relies on the support of its trustees and local governors who all give their time on a voluntary basis and are passionate about improving the educational outcomes for the young people in Dudley.

We currently have vacancies for volunteers to join us as local governors at a number of our academies and we welcome applications from individuals who are over 18 years of age and have the skills and time commitment to help drive school improvement.
