Governor Services

Ensuring your governance is effective and legally compliant

All schools and academies are required by law to be compliant with government regulations. High quality, effective and ethical governance is key to the success of every school and trust, for the future of children and young people. The complexities of governance are developing all the time and the risks associated with getting this wrong carry high penalties.

The Education Space is positioned to be the first point of contact to guide you through the minefield of ever-changing governance rules and support you in achieving strategic leadership, rigorous accountability, sound structures and legally compliant meeting protocol.

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive and high-quality support service that is agile and continuously evolving to meet your needs.


Our business model sets us apart from other providers. Our back-office team of Governing Board Support Officers is your main point of contact, working in tandem with our team of 40+ professional clerks. Your allocated GBSO supports your meeting preparation and follow-up, while your allocated clerk attends your meetings to advise on procedure and take minutes. This model offers strong support to ensure legal compliance.
