This was the title of a blog I wrote eighteen months ago when we supported the pilot of the Young Governors Network, but it bears repeating. Tomorrow is the first anniversary conference of BAMEed, the network of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic educators, where they will be encouraging volunteering for governance. And this sort of push is absolutely needed: overall as a sector we really are not making progress with increasing ethnic diversity of those governing.

Thank you to Sir David Carter, the National Schools Commissioner, for highlighting the crucial role played by those who govern our schools. His article very much emphasises the importance of training and development. We couldn’t agree more, and we know the vast majority of governors and trustees do too.
