Helping school governing boards achieve excellence through a digital leadership development program

Whether you are a new school governor or one with extensive experience, as a member of a governance board you need to continuously strive to achieve excellence and stay on top of the fast-changing educational environment.

To help governors, clerks and schools achieve this goal, we developed GovernorSpace - a digital platform that is entirely funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and which provides numerous leadership development programmes for governors and clerks.

Available entirely online, GovernorSpace offers benefits like expert advice, mentor guidance and interactive training activities. It also provides a robust network of peer-to-peer support for long-term development of governors.

In addition to the training programmes, the platform also offers GovernorConnect – a way to connect with your peers - and GovernorRecruit – a place to advertise and search for new governor employment opportunities.

With more than 6,000 registered governors and clerks from across England, this highly popular platform offers unparalleled benefits.
