Leaders Understanding the Role of Governors

Focus: Leadership and Management
For: Headteachers, deputies, assistant heads, middle leaders


What Governors need from Leaders and what Leaders should get in return. A session for senior/middle leaders about the role of Governors:

  • What do they do?
  • What do they need to know?
  • What do senior leaders need to do to get the best from Governors?
  • What information should we really be giving them?
  • If they’re not effective, how can I help them to be better?

Director’s Note:

Do you get the most out of your Governors? Are they a great asset or an irritation and yet another thing on your ‘to do’ list? Maybe having a better understanding of how to develop and nurture that relationship might help? Roland is a brilliant presenter on Governance.  He knows his stuff.
