Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that isn't listed here, then please feel free to ask us - we'll respond quicker than you might think!

What is Governance?

Governance is a multi-platform solution which aims to improve the effectiveness of your Governing Board or Trust by providing the opportunity to undertake regular competency evaluations of your Board/Trust Members and of the whole/Board itself. It contains up-to-date competency frameworks either mandated or suggested by the Department for Education, The National Governance Association, The Key and others.

How do I access it?

It is available as a native application (app) for any iOS or Android-enabled mobile or tablet and also any browser enabled PC or Mac. You just need an annual licence, which is available for £500 for a single School or Trust (for an unlimited number of Governors).

We are part of a Multi-Academy Trust - how might that work?

The capacity to apply and maintain consistency when evaluating the skills and competencies of Governors/Trustees is even more important across multiple locations or areas of operation. With the capacity to manage this centrally - and with immediately available dashboards for the whole group, Governance is perfect for this. Even better, group volume discounts are available which are linked to the size of your MAT.

How complicated is the setup process?

It's really simple. We know that a one-size fits all approach is a huge turn off with any EdTech solution, so we'll actually guide you through the entire process with the help of a simple discovery questionnaire/form that is emailed to you as soon as you purchase a licence. An example of some of the questions we'll ask is available here.

What support options are there?

We have a range of options for support, all of which are free with your licence: email support, telephone support or live chat directly from our website.
