Become a University Partner
University staff and alumni make excellent school governors. By partnering with universities across England and working alongside their Widening Participation teams, we are able to help universities set up effective school governor volunteer programmes. We continue to run bespoke volunteer recruitment events, such as presentations and information stands at universities, to show how engaging university staff in school governance is a fantastic way to facilitate employee continual professional development. Universities also have the opportunity to achieve their community engagement objectives.
We’re committed to expanding the number of universities we work with. If you represent a university and would like to discuss an effective school governor volunteer programme, or are interested in the university partnerships, we have a dedicated team on hand.
