THE TRUST GOVERNOR - user comment
"The Trust Governor is a hugely powerful online tool which ticks all the boxes when it comes to school governance.
The benefits in time and cost saving alone are huge with all our meeting papers and agendas uploaded online for instant access by governors removing the need for endless copying and duplication of paperwork.
We are now holding our resources, reference documents and website links centrally online which ensures that governors get to see the latest documents as they are published without the need for continuous email traffic.
We are managing our training and development on the Trust Governor matched to our skills audit which shows us at a glance where we might have skills gaps.
For our Clerk the onerous task of taking minutes and writing them up for review has become far more efficient with minutes being taken directly onto the template on Trust Governor and available immediately for review by the Chair.
Most importantly governors are finding that they are in touch with what is happening and they are able to chat to each other through the Trust Governor between meetings, leading to more informed debate and sound decision making at each meeting".
