I’ve been working with School Leaders and Governors for over 10 years and I have the best job in the world. It’s a privilege to help Governors and School Leaders do their jobs effectively. Working together means fantastic schools and better outcomes for our young people.
Working together means making best use of the skills, experience and resources we have within our local network. It’s simple, the more clients we have, the more efficient we can be. So everyone benefits from Working Together!
Everyone on Board is a campaign is to promote and encourage diversity on Governing Boards.
By joining a governing board, individuals from a broad variety of backgrounds, ages and experiences can bring different ways of thinking and give a voice to groups that may not otherwise be reflected. They can also act as role models to children and young people, giving them the confidence to achieve, raise and broaden their aspirations.
Individuals can bring unique insights to the governing board, overseeing and influencing decisions, which in turn helps them develop board-level skills and experience which can be taken back to the workplace.
