The role of the trust governance professional has grown significantly in recent times. GovernorHub is here every step of the way to support you in your role.

Having the tools at hand to support your governors and trustees

Our easy to use tools allow you to signpost your governors and trustees to training, guidance and resources quickly and effortlessly. No matter how your trust delegates responsibility - having governors who know the sector, understand the principles behind parental and community engagement, are trained in safeguarding, SEND and exclusions is vitally important for effective governance.

You can signpost governors to our training course quickly and easily so that the link is posted to their noticeboard and emailed to them - see the steps here. In the same way, you can signpost governors to articles that give guidance about a range of important topics from Exclusion Panels to governor visits.

Effective training leads to more engaged governors and if we want to recruit and retain governors we need to make sure they are well trained. Our Learning Pathways supplement the statutory training to make governors feel empowered.

Training completed (including Learning Pathways) are automatically added to each governor profile along with their certificate. The administration is effortless - all training can be downloaded in a handy report so you an focus on monitoring.

We've got engagement covered

We support the development of well-rounded governors who are up to speed with the knowledge they need to act. Our team release weekly engagement emails which help to keep your governors up to date with all of the latest guidance, signposting them to the relevant articles and Need to Knows as well as any new training or learning pathways we develop. They can sign up to our weekly news briefings through our governance blog The Hoot and receive a weekly update of the news in education to really keep them connected to the sector.

To ensure that you are your governors are getting the most out of GovernorHub we run regular live training for governors, clerks and trust admins to enable you to make the most of all of the features available. Check our our upcoming sessions here - as well as recordings of previous sessions that you can share with new governors, trustees and clerks.
