National College: Chair of Governors Training & Support in April 2012

The National College have been given a remit by the government to provide training and support for chairs of governors. They have been working with the National Governors’ Association (NGA), the National Co-ordinators of Governor Services (NCOGS) and the Foundation, Aided Schools and Academies National Association (FASNA) to develop this training and support.
Being a chair of governors is a key leadership role and governing bodies are central to the effective accountability of schools and academies. Leading the governing body and working in partnership with the headteacher, the chair plays a pivotal role in school improvement.
The following resources, training and support for chairs of governors will be available shortly.
From April 2012, leadership development will be available for chairs of governors. These will cover:
  • ensuring the governing body makes a difference and improves the school/academy
  • putting the accountability role of the governing body into practice
  • leading and managing the governing body

The National College  are also developing a role where outstanding chairs of governors will work with other chairs to help them to develop and improve. 
 This support will be targeted at specific schools and academies where improvement is needed, and where the chair of governors would benefit from additional support.
