"We started using Avec's governance service in September after looking for a service that would meet all of our governance needs in one package. We have found Avec to be extremely professional in providing a bespoke service which meets the needs of our school and has exceeded our expectations of such a service. Our Governance partner has worked alongside the school in a supportive, yet challenging, manner to ensure the Governing Body is equipped to meet the diverse demands of their role. Our partner is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Governance and in only two months has had a massive, positive impact on all matters relating to Governance."

Mrs Janine Gleeson, Head Teacher, St George's Church of England Academy

"We became an academy without the need for me to take my eye off my school - that says it all..... 

Extremely professional and responsive.....Hugely experienced but also able to bring the experience of so many other schools to bear on any given situation - providing solutions which I had not thought of...

I would absolutely recommend Avec for their professionalism and diligence - they are willing to go the extra mile.... 

Avec take the worry out of the most arcane regulations and allow school leaders to get on with leading.."

Dr Phil Ingram, Head Teacher, Southmoor Academy

"Avec were very professional and responsive and extremely knowledgeable...personalised service with first class knowledge and understanding of key issues"

Mrs Ann Dixon, Head Teacher, Firthmoor Primary School

" The service is very personalised to the strengths and needs of my leadership team and matters that arise within the school. Support is swift and clear which has enabled us to move much quickly on issues than we would have done otherwise. Their long term experience within a range of educational settings is reassuring, and their expertise is second to none."

Mrs Carolyn Barker, Executive Head Teacher, Barbara Priestman School, Sunderland
