At Governors for Schools, we recognise the benefits of working collaboratively with local authorities to improve education for children. We’re open to different ways of working, and collaborate with a range of stakeholders who all have the same goal of finding skilled and committed people to volunteer as governors.
Local authorities across England and Wales trust us to support their work, and we’re always happy to talk to local authorities about how we can work in partnership to fill their vacancies.
As part of our partnerships with local authorities, we share data reports to show the impact working together has on the authority.
I would thoroughly recommend the use of Governors for Schools in finding governors, and will continue to work alongside them to continue to raise the profile of governance in Blackpool.
We’ve seen the number of governor vacancies significantly reduce from 12.47% in spring 2017 to a fantastic 7.4% in autumn 2019.Jaki Currey, Governor Services Manager at Blackpool Council
