About the DfE Funding

The Department for Education (DfE) aims to build the capacity of governing boards across the country through a focus on supporting chairs to drive change in their boards and professionalising clerking to support boards to be effective and efficient.

To achieve this vision, the DfE have endorsed GovernorSpace and are providing all of the vital funding to deliver the training and mentoring. The funding will be available to access from January 2018 to 2020 and is available to all schools across the eight Regional School Commissioner (RSC) regions of England.
