Who Are The NGA?

The National Governance Association (NGA) is an independent charity representing and supporting governors, trustees and clerks in maintained schools and academies in England. Our goal is to improve the wellbeing of children and young people by increasing the effectiveness of governing boards and promoting high standards. We do this by providing information, advice, guidance; by undertaking research; and by delivering face to face training, e-learning and consultancy services. We also run national conferences and a number of regional events.  NGA also works closely with, and lobbies, UK government and educational bodies, and is the leading campaigning national membership organisation for school governors and trustees.
