SkillsWe're looking for governors who can help us connect with our SEND community, the healthcare professionals we work closely with, or our local community. Your insights will ensure we can continue to meet the needs of our students.

When can I volunteer?
Our Local Governing Body at Co-op Academy Southfield meets at least 6 times a year, usually 5 to 7pm on a weekday evening. You will also have the opportunity to visit the academy to observe academy life in action, which will be arranged at times that work for you. Training opportunities are usually offered on weekday evenings, with occasional daytime panels or training sessions. Meetings are currently held virtually, but we hope to return to in-person meetings once lockdown has lifted.
This opportunity has no specific location.
