Our Academies Need You

  • Are you passionate that young people deserve the best education to set them off in life?
  • Do you believe that a Christian moral structure is important?
  • Are you prepared to use your skills and experience for the benefit of the next generation?

Cidari Multi Academy Trust is inviting applications to become a Governor at one of our Academies.

Our Trust offers a Christian home to Schools who want the strength and support that comes from being in a family of like-minded academies. There are presently seven academies in the Cidari Family. They are located within the geographic spread of the Blackburn Diocese throughout Blackburn, Blackpool and Lancashire. There are also more schools in the Diocese looking to join the Trust in the future.

The Trust is governed by a Chair and Board of Directors, and whilst Academies are managed day to day by a Headteacher and their team, their work is scrutinised by a team of Governors as a committee of this board, who ensure that a clear strategy for the school is implemented and monitored. The concept is as a ‘Critical Friend’ – someone who has the confidence and ability to challenge where necessary, but who also supports the Academy and is willing to contribute ideas.

We recruit through word of mouth, networking, recomendations, advertising and working with key partners and agencies such as SGOSS (twitter feed below).

Do you have the attributes to fulfil a role on one of our Local Governing Committees?

If so please see 'How to Apply' we would love to hear from you.
