How we work?

The National Co-ordinators of Governor Services (NCOGS) is a committee representing Local Authority providers of services to school governors and other governor support professionals. The committee is made up of Co-ordinators of Governor Services (COGS) from across the eight regional groups and is funded through subscription.

As a group, the COGS exist to support and enable the delivery of high quality services to governors and to ensure effective governance in schools. The committee also provides a mechanism for professionals working in Governor services to access a range of materials and development opportunities. It is the committee's responsibility to influence and initiate national policy by identifying common themes emerging from the regions and then to communicate the outcomes to support the continuous improvement of governor support services.
