The Trust’s aim is to develop strong, accountable governing bodies, made up of highly skilled, well-informed, well-trained governors, who ensure statutory duties are met, set a standard of excellence and are focussed on improving teaching and learning.

The range of services we offer include:
  • support, advice and information about governors’ responsibilities and effectiveness
  • an annual school governors’ training programme
  • tailored courses for individual governing bodies
  • programme for Chairs of Governors
  • a telephone/email helpline
  • guidance documents
  • support for clerks to governors
The Trust also provides a service to administer the appointment of governors on behalf of the diocesan board.

“The Trust's support gave us a greater understanding of our roles and how we should work in our school, based on its current situation. The guidance was accurate and useful.”
