Inspiring Governance

22 November 2016

Inspiring Governance connects schools and colleges with skilled volunteers interested in serving as governors and trustees and provides support, advice and guidance to ensure that volunteers newly appointed to boards are able to govern effectively right from the outset. The service that launched 21 November 2016 is an innovative, free, online match-making service, which allows individuals to register their skills and boards to find governors no matter where they are in the country.

Over 3,000 volunteers have already signed up online and recruiting boards can search quickly and easily for the skills and experience they need. Hands on support is also available where it is not possible to make matches online.

Inspiring Governance is run by the charity Education and Employers in partnership with the National Governors’ Association working closely with Academy Ambassadors, the Association of School and College Leaders, the National Association of Head Teachers and other key partners. It is funded by the DfE until 2020 and powered by the Inspiring the Future technology platform.
