25 Jun Modern Governor announces new partnership with GovernorHub
Herts for Learning (HfL), the largest School Company in the UK is delighted to announce a new partnership with GovernorHub to support the training and development of governors and trustees in schools and academies across England.
HfL’s Modern Governor service – the leading online learning offering for school governors and academy trustees – is partnering with GovernorHub to simplify access to high-quality online learning – and to make governors’ training records accessible through GovernorHub’s governing board management tools.
Local authorities and multi-academy trusts offering both Modern Governor and GovernorHub will be able to offer their schools seamless access between the two services. In addition, local authorities and MATs will also have the option to extend their own online CPD by building e-learning modules to run alongside Modern Governor’s 60+ modules.
GovernorHub subscribers who don’t yet use Modern Governor will be able to add the mobile-friendly online learning service to their subscription and give their governors instant access. Similarly, Modern Governor customers will easily be able to give governors access to GovernorHub’s GDPR-compliant document management, board organisation and clerking tools, either directly or through their local authority governor support service.
The new partnership enables subscribing local authorities to offer a full service to complement and support their work in face-to-face training, clerking and advice. The partnership enables further opportunities for local authorities to develop e-learning content tailored to local needs, as well as offering growing multi-academy trusts a package to support and develop governance across geographical and institutional boundaries. Individual schools subscribing to both services will of course benefit from this new partnership.
Neil Collins, GovernorHub co-founder, said
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this to our existing customers. Our goal is to make life easier for governors, and there will now be no need to contend with multiple websites, logins and passwords. Governor training records will be automatically updated and can be downloaded as Ofsted evidence at the touch of a button.
“The Modern Governor e-training modules are of the highest quality and extremely well received by boards. The content is engaging – they’ve had years of experience of ‘getting it right’. This is a really great opportunity for governors and trustees.”
Andrew de Csilléry, Managing Director, HfL, said
“I am delighted that we have reached agreement with GovernorHub to provide improved access to Modern Governor, and seamless integration of a wider range of tools that benefit governors and trustees. We share a common commitment to helping schools deliver a great education, so the combination of Modern Governor and GovernorHub is a natural partnership.”
The combined service is planned to be offered to subscribing schools during the 2019-2020 academic year.
