A guide to using Inspiring Governance

Inspiring Governance is a free, Department for Education-funded service, which helps match skilled volunteers looking to become governors/trustees with schools. But how does the system work in practice?

Here is our step-by-step guide to using the Inspiring Governance service.

1.     It starts with a simple online registration. Tell us a little about your skills, experience and preferences in relation to becoming a governor.

2.     Your profile can be seen by local schools and colleges seeking new recruits. This is your opportunity to really sell your professional self, so think of it like a job application form.

3.     If your profile catches their eye, they will contact you through the website for an initial chat to start the process. Your commitment at this stage is simply to find out more.

4.     You can also view governor and trustee vacancies near you and express an interest for more information. This means you can be proactive in your search to join a governing board.
