IGovS are a group of ex-National Leaders of Governance based across the country from Cumbria to Lincolnshire, Lancashire to London who came together in July 2021 through the power of social media. We are here to offer free support to anyone with a governance responsibility and ensure they can still benefit from the mentoring, ‘safe space’ conversations and guidance which as former NLGs we were willing to offer.
Our members are very experienced Chairs in both the maintained and academy sectors with a vast range of governance skills, knowledge, and experience. Some members were NLGs for as long as the original programme was in existence and as a group, we have supported 1000’s of governors, chairs, vice chairs, heads, CEO, and clerks and in a range of ways; both paid (some of us work full time in governance) and unpaid through either formal deployments or through goodwill.
Our members also work for a range of organisations who offer training, coaching and mentoring or are self-employed, semi-retired, or working for Trusts as clerks and governance support. A number of our members run their own governance consultancies, training and advisory services. Working virtually means that we can provide support wherever it is needed using telephone calls, emails and even Social Media.
