Do you find it difficult to recruit governors who have the skills you need to enable your governing body to carry out its statutory responsibilities effectively? There are two national organisations who can help you find school governors – and they are both free of charge.
Inspiring the Future – is a new service that connects thousands of volunteers interested in becoming governors with schools and colleges nationwide.
Many of the volunteers are highly skilled professionals in areas such as Finance, Law, HR and Marketing. Volunteers initially pledge an hour for an exploratory chat about becoming a governor.
SGOSS, Governors for Schools and Colleges – is a dedicated service that recruits volunteers to serve as governors in schools and colleges. If you complete their online application form an SGOSS Area Manager will contact you to progress your application. SGOSS offers a free bespoke matching service to volunteers and schools.
The Inspiring Governors Alliance website contains further information on how to contact both organisations and what they can do to support you.
