SUPPORT WE CAN PROVIDE

IGovs exists to provide free independent support to school governors and trustees, regardless of whether they are in Trusts or maintained schools. Collectively, our consultants have many decades of governance experience and we will match your needs to a suitable expert.

Please note: while we offer a lot of our support and guidance for free, each member has a limit to what they are willing to supply without cost. Most if not all of our Members also provide paid governor support services should you need them but these will be negotiated directly with that member, not through this website.

The examples below are by no means exhaustive. If you do not see the service you require, please contact us  and we will tailor our support to your individual needs

COACHING

This has more of a focus on improving the performance of the individual in their role. Most often delivered to new-in-post Chairs of Governors. Often focused on specific areas, increasing confidence and improving performance. Areas include, but are not limited to:

a. Keeping to an agenda

b. Conducting an investigation

c. Handling complaints

d. Holding difficult conversations

e. Getting the most out of you board
