About Us

The Founders of National Association of School and College Clerks (NASCC), Fee Stagg and Sharon Warmington are professional Clerks with decades of experience in governance across all sectors. Our idea of NASCC was formed over a well-deserved coffee, in a conference that we felt was somehow not fulfilling the needs of Clerks in the education sector.

NASCC’s first offering was the Interim Report on Clerks Pay and Conditions which was not only eye-opening but disheartening to hear the many stories of being undervalued and underpaid, for the many unsociable hours Clerks work. Our next offering was the launch of the Clerks Chronicle, a regular newsletter that always keeps Clerks at the forefront and not as a ‘silent extra’ in the governance space.

Our third offering was to bring you all together (or as many as possible) at the beginning of the new academic year, in a half-day Clerks Conference. This focussed on getting you ready for the year ahead; as well as including some professional development (no different to a staff INSET Day really).

Finally, we are here, with a brand new website and membership offer. The benefits are endless and the focus is us - Everything (where possible/practicable) is provided by professional Clerks with the sole purpose of serving professional Clerks. Please note, whilst we refer to ‘Clerks’, we are also including and serving Governance Professionals, so if we miss anything you need to do your job - just get in touch and we’ll do our best to provide it for you.

Clerks' Challenges

Our profession is notoriously underpaid and in many areas, undervalued. At NASCC we take responsibility for making sure this discussion remains at the forefront of change in the sector.
We work long unsociable hours and in many cases we sacrifice time with family and friends to make sure we get those minutes completed or the inevitable last minute meeting properly organised.
Being recognised as the professional voice around the table is not guaranteed and we often face push-back when governors or trustees cannot have their own way (which goes against the governing documents!)

Our Membership is for You

There are an estimated 10,000 Clerks and Governance Professionals across the UK and we encourage EVERY one of you to join NASCC, not just for the benefits listed but for the assurance that you are not alone. As a NASCC Member you will be able to add it to your CV/Profile and use our collective voice to change our profession for the better. NASCC is represented on the DfE’s Advisory Group on Governance and therefore your voice - our voice - is heard, loud and clear.
