Last October saw the launch of Inspiring Governance, a new website to encourage people to come forward and volunteer for school governance. The Inspiring Governance service has now been supported by the publication of new guidance on how to recruit and retain new governors and trustees to school and academy boards. This has been an area subject to considerable change in recent years, not only as the nature of governance has changed but as the means of reaching out to people and sharing vacancies has also modernised. Martin Hodgson, a former school governor of 15 years, looks at the guidance.
