You could help shape the future of children and young people in Swansea by becoming a school governor. We are calling on members of the public to get involved and help fill around 100 vacancies for Govenors across the city.


There are three types of School Govenor, who are appointed for a four-year period. Parent Governors, Community Governors, and Local Authority Governors some of whom are elected members of the Council.


The law states that employers are obliged to give employees who are school governors the time to carry out their important voluntary role. If you are interested in playing an active role in the future of Education in our city and becoming a School Governor, please ring the School and Governor Unit at Swansea Council on 01792 636551 or go to:
