Welcome to the Governors section of the BELB website dedicated to the role and work of Governors in the BELB area.

The aim is to provide information on a wide range of Governor related matters in an easy to use format which will be of value both to existing Governors and those interested in becoming a school Governor.

To those of you who already are Governors we would take this opportunity to thank you for your time,energy and iterest in making your very valuable contribution to the education of young people in the Belfast Board area.

As schools become more openly accountable for what they do the role of Governors is becoming increasingly demanding as they become more pro-active in monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of their school.

In this section you will find information which will help you in this work.

This includes:

  • Education in Northern Ireland
  • Boards of Governors - their structure, roles and responsibilities
  • Boards of Governors - their operation
  • Training Course Materials
  • Opportunities to let us know how we can further help you develop your role and work as a Governor
