Do I need a background in education to be a clerk?

Category: Clerking / Governance Professional

A background/knowledge of the education system is not required for the role of clerk. However, this would be beneficial. Many administrative roles would have transferrable skills.  Specific knowledge of legislation, terminology, etc, will form part of the induction process.  Support on this will be provided by the team at Shaping Governance.

If you are currently a school governor, then this also provides a good grounding in the role of a clerk.
