The National Governance Association (NGA) is the expert organisation for school and trust governance. Our charitable aim is to improve the educational standards and wellbeing of young people by increasing the effectiveness of governing boards and promoting high standards.

In our annual report of achievements, we show how we meet this aim through our membership, professional development services and influencing work as well as through representing governors, trustees and governance professionals in the national education arena.
