A group of governors from NGN are working with the LA to devise ways of helping governing bodies recruit governors. Vacancies for governors across Norfolk have increased in recent years. We believe the figures held by Governor Services (GS) are not completely accurate as governing bodies do not notify changes to GS. Do you realise that once a governor has reached the end of their term of office their name is removed from GS records? So if a governor is reappointed for a further term you do need to tell GS as well as details of resignations and new appointments. Please ensure this happens for your governing body.

As part of this initiative NGN are keen to hear of successful examples of how you recruited  eg Where did you advertise? What did you say? How did you help new governors become part of  and stay a member of your Governing Body?   Please send your examples to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The results from this working group will be published on both the Governor Services and the NGN websites later in the year.
