The Role of the Faculty Link Governor

If you are a new Link Governor, welcome to the role. If you have been in post for a while, thank you very much for your commitment so far. A good working relationship between the Head of Faculty within school and the subject link governor will enhance the success of this initiative.

As a model, the Faculty Link Governor should undertake some or all of the following:

  • Become informed about relevant documents and legislation; Ofsted criteria for evaluating subject provision; local and national issues impacting on the Faculty subjects.
  • Liaise with the Head of Faculty and head of subject in order to become informed about staffing arrangements and training; the condition and availability of resources; curriculum and timetable arrangements; special needs provision; assessment and recording procedures for the subject.
  • Establish and maintain effective lines of communication between the Head of Faculty and the governing body.
  • Try to attend any in-house training connected with the Faculty subjects.
  • Meet at least once per year with the Faculty leader to consider how the subjects are developing across the school.
  • Ask about the resources allocated to the Faculty and how these are being used effectively.
  • Find out about any local activities linked to the Faculty and ask how governors might help to support.
  • Be involved in the school’s approach to informing parents and involve them in their children’s learning of the Faculty subjects.

On carrying out the role of a link governor, you should always remember that you are a source of support and a critical friend to the school.

We hope that you will enjoy being a link governor and we are very grateful for the time and energy that you give to the role.
