About Governors for Schools

Governors for Schools provides a free governor recruitment service for volunteers and schools across London and the wider country. They work on a skills-based matching system and will put you in contact with schools most in need of the skills and experience you bring. They provide you with a free 16 week induction pack from The Key for School Governors to help you settle into your new role and have a number of free e-learning modules on their website to introduce you to school governance.

School governors play a key role in help setting the strategic direction of schools and implementing best practise, in an advisory role, while leaving the day to day management of schools to Head Teachers and their staff bodies. They are often referred to as the most important volunteer group in education. The role offers a fantastic CPD community to test and develop your skills in a challenging environment whilst making a significant contribution to your local community.

For more information on becoming a school governor, please visit or contact William Durham, London Team Leader, via or 020 7288 9535 as he will be happy to discuss the role with you further.
