Better Governor Forum

We have created our forum for you as governors, trustees, and clerks. The forum is a safe and secure platform where you can ask questions, clarify understanding and seek advice on any aspect of school governance. It provides a great opportunity for professional networking for all of us involved in school governance at all levels.

The forum is facilitated by our governance experts, who monitor and moderate content and contribute to discussion, often in real time. We moderate content so that you can always be certain that what you see on Better Governor is based on expert opinion, statute and best practice
