We are thrilled to announce an exciting collaboration between Safeguarding Network and Inspiring Governance. Our joint webinar, is taking place on 10th October at 16:30, bringing together experts in safeguarding and governance to discuss the critical role of governor boards in ensuring the safety and welfare of children in schools.

Webinar topics

The webinar will cover:

  • What is school and academy governance and how is it changing?
  • What is Inspiring Governance and how can you best promote your skills to local schools?
  • The Value of Volunteering research showing the benefits and potential career progression that becoming a governor brings you
  • How becoming a governor can develop skills for your professional life
  • Understand the Everyone on Board campaigns focussed on diversifying school governance

Inspiring Governance connects skilled volunteers who are interested

in serving as school governors with schools in England.

By becoming an Inspiring Governance School Governor Champion you would then access the following additional support:

  • Partner page – see below examples
  • Quarterly Tracking Report – providing number of sign ups, numbers placed and volunteering hours undertaken
  • Quarterly Touchpoint meeting to identify additional support required
  • Regular ready made comms/articles and social media assets linked to campaigns e.g. Volunteers Week, Back to School
  • 2 x Lunch and Learn Sessions for staff to find out more about becoming a Governor – 45min-1hr virtual session which will be tailored to the audience and references the benefits that volunteering can bring to members including well-being, playing a key role in their local community, career progression as well as the value those from professional sectors bring to governing boards. It will also cover the need for governance, the role itself and how Inspiring Governance works to place volunteers onto school boards.
