A School Governor Recruitment Programme

Step on Board: is a School Governor recruitment scheme brought to you by Insight to Impact Consulting Ltd and the Pledge.


Being a school governor is a rewarding and satisfying role.  However, over the last year, we have worked with an increasing numbers of schools, and one pattern is emerging – the difficulty in recruiting new governors.  So we wanted to help connect local employers with local school, 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.


This initiative has been rolled out across 2018 and is already 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.”


What Others Say...

"Su was recommended to work with us following an Ofsted inspection which resulted in us being in Requires Improvement.  Su coached me individually, and also led group workshops reviewing our governing board in depth; assisting with creating and working through our action plan.

At the next Ofsted inspection the outcome was Good … and the work that Su had done with us was noted in the inspection report, demonstrating the impact of Su’s work"
