Good governance in any sector needs the right leaders in the boardroom. A well-run academy trust helps the next generation to thrive and more volunteers are needed across the country to step forward as academy board members. I have seen first-hand the difference good schools and good trusts make and I am delighted to work with the Academy Ambassadors programme to ensure talented British business leaders have the opportunity to join academy trust boards.
