Governance Advisers

Your first point of contact for governance advice is through our Advisory and Support Centre Governance on 0800 782 435 (option 1) or by email via  Our team of advisers can assess your issue and provide you with the appropriate advice. Should your matter require more attention it can be escalated to our in-house governance and legal team.  If you require face-to-face contact or the matter is particularly sensitive or complex, one of our governance advisers will meet with you and provide you with the support you need.

Our governance advisers are all experienced school governance practitioners. They are grouped in ‘hubs’ and ‘sub-hubs’ located in Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin and work closely with our employment advisers to ensure a case management type approach to your issues.
