The Inspiring Governors Alliance is the result of discussions between the Department for Education, the National Governors’ Association, NCOGS, CBI, SGOSS and the Education and Employers Taskforce about how to:
- celebrate the valuable role played by school governors
- increase the number of governing bodies actively seeking to recruit and develop high calibre governors with relevant skills and experience and
- increase the number of employers supporting staff to volunteer as governors as well as promoting governance as a key learning and development opportunity for staff.
The Department for Education asked the charity Education and Employers to lead on generating support for the Alliance and its objectives and developing this website. If you are interested in joining the Alliance and expressing your support for these objectives please contact the Education and Employers charity.
