The National Governors’ Association (NGA) is the national membership body for school governors.  NGA has several categories of membership comprising individual governors, school governing bodies and independent local associations of school governing bodies.  NGA seeks to represent the interests of governing bodies in all state funded schools (local authority maintained and academies).

Over the four years up to April 2015 teaching salaries will have eroded in real terms, and the NGA has concerns that this may have an impact on the supply of high quality candidates for teaching posts.
