About National Governance Association
The National Governance Association (NGA) is an independent charity representing and supporting governors, trustees and clerks in maintained schools and academies in England.
The NGA’s goal is to improve the wellbeing of children and young people by increasing the effectiveness of governing boards and promoting high standards.
It does this by providing information, advice, guidance, research and training. It also works closely with, and lobbies, UK government and educational bodies, and is the leading campaigning national membership organisation for school governors and trustees.
The National Governance Association aims to represent all school governors and trustees in England. There are over 300,000 governor/trustees, one of the largest volunteer groups in the UK. We are an independent charity that aims to support and promote good governance in our schools. We do this through lobbying, via a range of contacts with ministers, policy makers and education organisations. We also run national conferences, and a number of regional events.
