Do governors on your GB sit on the recruitment panel for teachers?
The National Governors' Association is the representative body for state-funded school governors in England.
The NGA represents schools governors from all state funded schools; including those from LA maintained schools and academies in England.
The NGA is the only independent body representing school governors in England. There are over 300,000 governors; the largest volunteer group in the UK. We are an independent charity that aims to improve the well-being of children and young people by promoting high standards in all our schools and improving the effectiveness of their governing bodies. We support both local authority maintained schools and academies.
The NGA supports local governor associations and governing bodies, lobbies ministers and policy makers on all policies that impact schools and offers high-quality guidance, information, conferences and advice for governors and governance professionals. The NGA facilitates effective communication with our members, tailored to the requirements of governors. Our range of communications includes our bi-monthly magazine Governing Matters, a weekly e-newsletter, bulletin board for local associations and regular events and conferences.
Governors can join the NGA as individuals or as members of a government maintained governing body; this includes academies, free schools and city technology colleges. Local governor associations may also join the NGA. Local authorities, education organisations and education businesses can also support the work of the NGA as corporate partners.
