Together, we support great governance - helping more than 100,000 governors, trustees and clerks focus on what matters: making a difference to children and young people in schools.
Governors for Schools is a charity that finds, places, and supports skilled volunteers as governors and trustees on school and academy boards. We operate across England and Wales, working closely with volunteers, schools, universities, public bodies and business partners to ensure we find suitable matches that produce excellent outcomes for young people.
According to our latest impact measurements, over 97% of schools would recommend Governors for Schools’ services, while 96% report that governors are as skilled as – or even better than – other governors. Such positive results stem from the highly personalised approach we offer. Governors for Schools employs a range of methods to nurture the professional skills of our recruits and equip them with the strategic knowledge necessary to make lasting change in their communities. We provide free access to a range of eLearning, webinars and our annual CPD accredited digital conference for those interested in governance.
Our newly established Trustee Recruitment Service can support you to find trustees for your academy board. We understand that trusts have their own unique governance structures designed to best support each academy. We’ll work with you, taking your trust’s needs and priorities into consideration, alongside the level of expertise and commitment required, before connecting you with a skilled volunteer.
