National School Governors' Awareness Day
Being a school governor is a voluntary role and it's estimated that there are almost 300,000 governors and trustees in England alone - all giving their time freely to support schools and academies.
National School Governors' Awareness Day has been created by Strictly Education to celebrate the commitment and contribution that governors and trustees make to improving the experiences of children and young people across the UK.
Supporting communities through the cost-of-living crisis
This year's National School Governors' Awareness Day is happening on Tuesday, 28th February between 8am and 8pm. Better Governor, Governors for Schools, The National Governance Association, Child Poverty Action Group and Exeter University's Professor of Social Mobiliity, Lee Elliot Major, will join together with Thrive's Viv Trask-Hall to bring current and aspiring governors and trustees a programme that's as valuable, informative and enlightening as it is engaging.
