Governors for Schools

Since 1999, Governors for Schools has supported schools by connecting them with skilled volunteers across England. In 2021, they expanded their important work into Wales, and launched a trustee recruitment service in September 2022. They work with schools, volunteers and organisations to support their mission and are proud supporters of National School Governors Awareness Day 2023. 

Over a third of schools in England have one or more vacancy on their governing board. Governors for Schools strive to support schools across England and Wales, from maintained schools to large MATs, to find highly skilled governors and trustees for their boards. 

Through partnership and collaboration with organisations across England and Wales, they work to showcase the benefits of governance, building connections with local communities and supporting professional development of thousands of people across England and Wales. 

They provide a range of support for current governors including popular monthly webinars experts from Better Governor, free to access eLearning modules and their popular annual free CPD certified digital conference.
