Become a school governor today!

Want to make a difference in your community, whilst developing your skills and experience? By volunteering as a school governor, you can do both.

Inspiring Governance has teamed up with University College Birmingham to help place students and staff onto local governing boards.

Anyone can become a governor. Governing boards need people from different backgrounds with a wide range of professional skills to drive school improvements across the country.

Getting involved has never been this easy – Inspiring Governance can help you find a school governor role that develops, inspires and challenges you. It’s free and easy to use, allowing you to:

  • Connect with local schools and colleges via our easy-to-use website.
  • View opportunities near you and schools can see that you are interested.
  • Receive a free induction guide book published by the National Governance Association (NGA), the leading independent charity that supports and promotes good governance in schools, once appointed.

Sign up here today with Inspiring Governance to have your skills matched with a local school that needs your help.
