Inspiring Governance (for MAT governance leads, clerks or Chairs of Governors/Trustees

July 2019

Inspiring Governance is a DfE funded governor recruitment service led by Education and Employers and delivered in partnership with the National Governance Association (NGA). The service supports both maintained schools and MATs with recruiting skilled governors to their governing boards/academy committees.

The service works via an online platform where recruiters can post opportunities and search for skilled volunteers close to them using OS mapping technology. Once appointed as governors within your schools or academies, the new governors can access 12 months of initial support from the NGA, including access to their Learning Link online modules. NGA and Inspiring Governance have also launched a campaign, Everyone on Board, to recruit potential governors from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
