The free Modern Governor mobile app

Our free mobile app for iOS & Android supports school governors and trustees with a useful glossary of commonly-used terms in education, exclusive extracts from leading books on governance and a customisable reader of the leading blogs on governance where available. Blog posts are downloaded into the app so you can read the latest news and views on governance from across the education & policy landscape.
