I met up with the delightful Eleanor at the show, this is what she had to say….
Governors for Schools
is an education charity that connects skilled and committed professionals with schools and academies who need governors. We exist to improve education outcomes for England’s children, and we know that a vital key to ensuring strong school performance is highly effective governance. By finding, nurturing and supporting a diverse and talented network of governors, we help to drive systematic change in how schools are run. We have placed over 10,000 governors in the last 5 years.
We have excellent relationships with blue chip companies, giving access to highly skilled business people, and we match these skills to those wanted by schools. We also offer high quality e-learning and a series of Business Governor Network events.
Governors for Schools is evolving and growing with the leadership of CEO Louise Cooper, who has a background in business and social enterprise. By developing the services we offer, and expanding our work with corporate supporters, key partners and within local communities, we are supporting schools to achieve excellent governance. It’s an exciting time to be part of our organisation and make a real difference in education.
