Our partners

We work closely with a number of other organisations which share similar aims, beliefs and aspirations. Find out how your organisation can partner with us.


Education and Employers 

The Education and Employers charity aims to ensure that every school and college has an effective partnership with employers to provide students with the inspiration, skills and opportunities they need to help them achieve their potential.

The Charity runs Inspiring the Future which connects state-funded schools and colleges with employers and business leaders. School leaders can easily and at no cost invite volunteers to visit and speak to young people about their job, career and the educational route that they took. Following requests from primary schools, Inspiring the Future has now been extended to primary schools under the name Primary Futures.


Ambition School Leadership

Ambition School Leadership was formed in 2016 from education charities, The Future Leaders Trust and Teaching Leaders. By building a network of exceptional school leaders at all levels ASL aims to raise the achievement of children, regardless of background, and to provide them with equal choices and opportunities in life. Research by ASL demonstrates that leadership development for school leaders is an effective way to help eradicate educational disadvantage, proving our assertion that great leaders make great schools and great schools change lives.

Inspiring Governors

The Inspiring Governors Alliance is comprised of the Department for Education, the National Governance Association, NCOGS, CBI, SGOSS and the Education and Employers Taskforce. Their principal aims are to –

  • celebrate the valuable role played by school governors;
  • increase the number of governing bodies actively seeking to recruit and develop high calibre governors with relevant skills and experience; and
  • increase the number of employers supporting staff to volunteer as governors as well as promoting governance as a key learning and development opportunity for staff.


The National Governance Association (NGA) is an independent charity that aims to improve the educational standards and well-being of children and young people through supporting and promoting outstanding governance in all state-funded schools. Through its training programs and consultancy service, the NGA assists in the development of good governance and champions the importance of robust governance nationally.   

SGOSS Governors for Schools

SGOSS Governors for Schools are school governor recruitment experts who support and champion the establishment of diverse and effective governing bodies across schools in England. Volunteering as a governor can be a great way to contribute to your community and use your skills and experience to improve the lives of local children. Set up in 1999 by the Department for Education, originally as a sixth month pilot, SGOSS is still offering a free service to volunteers, schools and employers.
