Governors - A lesson plan for recruiting school governors

A lesson plan for recruiting school governors.

Good morning and welcome to SGOSS. The personal, professional and free school governor recruitment service. Today we'll cover the reasons why you should register your school.

Let's start by rewinding to 1999. As Harry Potter swoops onto the literary scene, SGOSS is launched by the he Department for Education as a 6 month pilot to help schools access governors with business and management skills. Fast forward 14 years through three different government s and SGOSS is still growing having placed 16,000 school governors to date.

Let's have a look at the map. SGOSS started out in four major cities and is now working across all 152 of England's local authorities
Time to get down to business. SGOSS works with over 2000 top companies across England to provide school governors with valuable skills from the business world. Everything from financial and legal, through to H.R. and marketing skills.

Okay, let's see how the numbers add up. Take 33,000 -- the number of unfilled school governor positions at any one time, factor in 105 days -- the average time it takes us to fill a school's vacancy, add the benefits of 47% of SGOSS governors becoming Chair, Vice-Chair or leading a committee, the result -- 5.6 million children impacted by SGOSS volunteers.

This will be music to your ears - drum roll please - SGOSS' services are free now and in the future!

All that remains is a bit of homework. Simply go online today and register your school at for access of materials, guidance and to start the search for your next school governor.
If video not working click "report to moderator" & we'll fix it.
