School Governors’ One-Stop Shop (or SGOSS) is a fantastic charity, which encourages people to volunteer as a School Governor. All of their services are free, and since it was formed in 1999, SGOSS has placed thousands of Governors.
Modern Governor was thrilled that the SGOSS Chief Executive, Steve Acklam, recently endorsed our e-learning for School Governors. He says:
“It is increasingly important for school governors to have flexible access to training for this important role. With its on-line format the Modern Governor suite of training modules meets this requirement, and I am happy to recommend it as a valuable contributor to enhancing governor effectiveness.”
Holly Saunders from SGOSS also spoke at the 2010 Learning Pool Public Sector conference. She spoke from the heart about what it takes to be a Governor and how worthwhile a choice it can be.
