Need a Governor? Contact us!

Insight to Impact uses its extensive local network to connect local companies and their employees to school governor vacancies.


Step on Board: is our School Governor Recruitment scheme brought to you in partnership with South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and the Cheshire and Warrington Pledge.


Being a school governor is a rewarding and satisfying role.  However, over the two years, we have worked with an increasing numbers of schools, one pattern is emerging – the difficulty in recruiting new governors.  So we wanted to help connect local employers with local schools, and launched Step on Board during National Volunteer Week in 2018.


Its purpose is two-fold?


  • To provide opportunities for employers to give back to the community, improve educational outcomes for local children and their future workforce, and to provide valuable experience for ambitious and aspiring professionals.

  • To ensure that schools and governance have the capacity to support children to do well.


Now rolling out Nationally, our approach to recruitment is proving to be popular with businesses and schools alike. 

  • Are you a school with governor vacancies? or;

  • An employer wanting to give back and support your employees to develop?


If so, then get in touch

Trevor Langston, lead for The Pledge said, “Being a school governor is a great opportunity for anyone looking to develop their skills and experience.  Schools also benefit from having employers able to provide an insight into the needs of the local labour market and the skills and qualities that employers look for.  We look forward to working together with Su as we see employers working with schools at governor level as a great opportunity to further help our vision of putting employers at the heart of working with young people.”
