Improving School Governance: Working with governing bodies and governors

School Governing Body Performance Indicators

A needs-analysis survey carried out across a number of LEAs highlighted the skills training needs of Governors and staff.  I have specifically designed the Improving School Governance courses listed below to meet those needs.  They are suitable for the most experienced to the least.

How long are the courses?

Each Improving School Governance course can be delivered in a two-hour session; however, many of the courses benefit from longer periods if available. A half-day/long evening is adequate for most.  A full day school improvement programme is available.

Each session is designed as a stand-alone to be delivered in a seminar or conference setting. They may also form a designated series of seminars for induction or continuing development purposes.
