The Key

The Key is an online support service for school leaders and governors, providing clear, comprehensive help and resources. The Key has supported Governors for Schools since 2012, and throughout this time, thousands of new governors have benefitted from The Key’s resources.

The Key worked with Governors for Schools to develop the charity’s first eLearning module in conjunction with Lloyds Banking Group. The module has since been accessed by over 5,000 people. The Key has also supported our webinar programme with valuable content and speakers.

All our newly placed governors receive 12 months’ free access to The Key for School Governors to support them in their new role.
