Paul Goddard - Governor

  • Co-opted Governor, 28.04.2019
  • Staffing & Resources Committee (Chair)
  • Pay Committee

"I have been a governor at Deptford Green School since April 2015, and I am also the chair of the Staffing and resources committee. I have for the last 10 years worked for the London Borough of Lewisham managing the Education business partnership. During that time I have:

1. Expanded the borough's work experience programme from 6 schools in 2007, to every school in the borough within a centrally managed programme. This means that as a borough, we now facilitate every student in KS4 with meaningful block work experience of one or two weeks

2. Raised students self find placements from 23% in 2007 to 67% in 2017 across the borough. This along with giving our young people the skills needed to engage employers, has helped to increase our students confidence in engaging with professionals.

3. Ensured that annually all our nearly 2400 students go to a placement that has been checked by a suitably qualified person in regard to Health & Safety."
