Trust Governance Professionals is an organisation on a mission to support academy trust governance professionals. We were established by a group of governance professionals motivated by the knowledge that the governance role in academy trusts is unique, multi-faceted and broad-ranging.
We have experience of directly delivering academy governance across the full range of aspects of this role – from board and committee support to local governance, risk, compliance, policies, admissions, exclusions, data protection, and freedom of information. We leverage this in-depth knowledge of the demands and complexities of this role in order to provide expert support to trusts in recruiting, inducting and training the emerging cohort of governance professionals across the country. We do this in particular through our flagship programme, Trust Governance Insight, which is an annual programme of training sessions, resources, bulletins and one-to-one support. It is unique in focusing on practical guidance for professionals working in academy governance and our fantastic community of 140+ governance professionals meet and stay in touch regularly throughout the academic year.
