Hundreds of governance professionals helped the NGA over the last 12 months, adding their input and experiences in the form of focus groups, surveys and quality assurance to make the career pathway a vital tool for those in and joining the profession.
Baroness Diane Barran, Minister for the schools' system, recorded a message endorsing the resources and the valuable contribution that school and trust governance professionals make to the education sector.
Steve Edmonds, Director of Advice and Guidance at NGA, has produced a blog that explores and introduces the pathway's features and purpose.
“I want to thank NGA for producing the career pathway and for being really clear about skills, qualifications and attributes that contribute to a great governance professional. Making it easier for those working and considering working in this area to understand how to succeed in their career”.Baroness Barran, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department for Education
“I am delighted that NGA is launching this career pathway and highlighting the work of a profession that makes an immense contribution to the schools system but whose work is often largely unseen.”Emma Knights, Chief Executive of the National Governance Association
"I believe the pathway can be a “game changer” for the profession, however it is merely a vehicle. It is those working in governance professional roles who must lead the way on educating employers about the profession and making it attractive to new entrants.."Steve Edmonds, Director of Advice and Guidance at the National Governance Association
