Governors for Schools now works with independent schools to find governors for their school boards.

Our funders and trustees believe that our priority is to place governors in the state sector. However, we recognise the need for good governance across all schools to improve education for all children. Independent schools face similar challenges in finding committed volunteers with the relevant skillset, and in response to increasing demand, we now offer a matching service for independent schools for a one-off fee of £500. This is payable upon placement of a suitable applicant and covers the recruitment and support costs of the volunteer.

All volunteers have access to our suite of e-Learning modules, webinars, and other support services to make sure they’re equipped to make a positive impact from their first day in the role.
