Governor Services for Schools and Academies
Supporting school improvement through effective Governor services.
We work with schools and academies to develop and embed strong governance at all levels. At a time of huge educational change, we will support you to find your way through the rules and regulations, putting all our extensive professional knowledge and hands-on experience to work for you.
Our knowledgeable, thoroughly trained clerks can assist at all types of meeting from trust board meetings to specialist panels and will provide administrative and organisational support from agenda preparation to final minutes.
Our Clerks receive regular specialist training and are kept up to date on all changes to legislation and practice so they can provide advice and guidance on procedures during the meeting as well as the administrative support you need. We also offer note-taking for staff grievances, disciplinaries and appeals.
The courses in our governor training programme are designed to embed the three core functions of governance and to reflect the Governance Competency Framework (DfE 2017), ensures governors, PRU managers and academy board members have the knowledge and skills they need to effectively govern their schools and academies. Alongside this, we offer bespoke training for individual boards or groups of boards - personalised to meet your needs at a local level. We also offer online learning opportunities, many of them through our partnership with the National Governance Association. Click here to learn more.
With options suitable for both LA maintained schools and academies, our subscription packages offer you access to Governorhub and a range of resources, advice and guidance. It is worth noting that buying into either our clerking or training services entitles you to a discount on the subscription packages.
We offer a range of bespoke support services including:
Full governance management for academy trusts
Bespoke packages for multi-academy trusts and federations
Supported self-evaluation of your governing board
