Inspiring Governance teams up with Health Education England to get NHS Ambassadors on the Board

Inspiring Governance is delighted to announce our new joint-campaign: Let’s get NHS Ambassadors on the Board.

Launched this week, the campaign aims to increase the number of people with clinical backgrounds and from diverse backgrounds on school governing boards. The campaign will also target allied health professionals (AHPs), healthcare scientists, midwives, psychologists ‒ who also have great leadership contributions to make but may be less able to find their way to strategic roles that maximise their contribution.

NHS employees are perfectly suited to the role of school governors as they possess a diverse range of skills, expertise and experiences that will be invaluable to any school.

Becoming a school governor is a great first step on the journey to senior positions for NHS professionals. We want NHS staff, who are passionate about what they do, to join school governing boards and make a real impact on the lives of young people.

Do you want to make a difference in your community, and develop your own professional skills? By volunteering as a school governor or trustee, you can do both. Sign-up here
