We're making changes to our website but check out our upcoming events below

Our website is being updated to include much more information on how you can become a School Governor and how schools, academies and colleges can diversify their strategic boards.  

Launching in January 2021


NBGN is able to provide a matching service for its existing Members and the organisations looking for Black Governors.  However, our primary service is in the design and delivery of bespoke training for your governors, heads and SLT in understanding how to recruit and retain Black Governors whilst avoiding tokenism and tick-boxing. CLICK BELOW to complete the simple form and we'll be in touch.


Green Boxes are COMMISSIONED events and CLOSED to the general public. 

Amber Boxes are PUBLIC events which are FREE to attend (although some may have specific criteria for attendance). 

Red Boxes are PUBLIC events which have a FEE attached in order to attend and costs are made clear at the point of registration
