University of Manchester School Governor Initiative (UMSGI)
As part of the University's widening participation and social responsibility strategy, we already boast one of the UK’s most extensive programmes of work with local state schools and colleges – particularly those in more challenging circumstances.
In accordance with the University’s new access agreement with the Office for Fair Access, we have developed a new School Governor Initiative that will:
- help staff and alumni to find volunteering placements as governors in local schools through our 2 partner organisations, Governors for Schools and Inspiring Governance;
- provide a network for University staff working as governors to share best practice, support each other and act as positive ambassadors for the University’s work with schools and colleges.
