Governor Support for Academies

The Governor Support Team has extensive knowledge and experience of working with both single and Multi-Academy trusts, providing advice, guidance, training and support to Trust Boards, Members and Local Governing Boards. 


As the focus on academy leadership and governance by the DfE and Ofsted continues to increase, the value of a professional clerking service has been highlighted, particularly within inspections. 

One Education provides a variety of high quality clerking services to meet your needs by delivering expert advice, guidance and administrative support on all matters of academy governance. We support single and Multi-Academy trusts to meet the requirements of their Funding Agreements, Articles and the EFA Academies Financial Handbook. Our clerks support all the meetings that your academy might require including Trust Boards, Annual General Meetings, Local Governing Bodies and Committees.
