National Governance Association

The National Governance Association (NGA) is the membership organisation  for governors, trustees and clerks of state schools in England.

We are an independent, not-for-profit charity that aims to improve the educational standards and wellbeing of young people by increasing the effectiveness of governing boards and promoting high standards. We are expert leaders in school and academy governance, providing information, advice and guidance, professional development and e-learning.

We represent the views of governors, trustees and clerks at a national level  and work closely with, and lobby, UK government and educational bodies
