Our current partners support schools

Governors for Schools strongly believes the business sector plays a key role in supporting effective leadership in schools across England and Wales. Since the charity’s founding in 1999, corporate partnerships have been central to our success. 

Our success last year

In 2023-24, we successfully supported the appointment of 331 volunteers into governance roles via our corporate partnerships. This represents a 24% increase compared to the previous year reflecting the ever strengthening partnerships we build with our partners.

Governors for Schools provides a dedicated volunteer recruitment service for partners, supporting their employees to take on governance roles. Thanks to the dedicated work of our Partnerships team, this process is quick, efficient, and rewarding for all involved.

One of our aspirations is for all employers to recognise the value of their employees volunteering in school governance roles, and supporting them to do so. We are continuing to make strong progress towards this, why not join our mission?

Working with Governors for Schools to support schools

Encouraging employees to become school governors comes with many benefits, including social impact and professional development. As detailed in our research, exploring the link between governance and professional development, governors report strong development in their transferable skills and performance in the workplace. 
Governors for Schools offers a range of partnerships to suit different organisations. We’d be delighted to discuss your unique needs and preferences.
