Customers from all across the sector

Rather than relying on blind trust, it's worth considering the insights and contributions of those who have played a pivotal role in refining Governance into the solution it is today.

James Ellis
Governing Board Chair
“Governance is highly recommended as it's incredibly easy to use, making it straightforward to get started right away. It's reliable and efficient, up to date with the latest competency frameworks and it just works without any hassle.”
Eva Ward
School Headteacher
“The support we receive from Competence Development is really impressive. Every time we have a query they respond immediately and with the kind of care and attention I haven't always experienced from education sector software providers. Outstanding stuff.”
Malcolm Keates
CEO, Multi-academy Trust
“We now have a high-level view of the skills and experience of everyone across the Trust. By highlighting the gaps between where we are now and where we'd like to be moving forward, we can create a clear roadmap for achieving our goals. From a Board perspective this is fantastic and makes succession planning so much easier.”
Heather Miller
School Governance Professional
“We'd been using a combination of different methods to undertake our skills audits including both documents (sometimes even printed!) and spreadsheets. This is so much easier, the analysis is immediate and the fact that everything works on whichever device you're using at the time is just brilliant.”
