In this webinar, Nina Sharma and Megan Tate from the NGA provide the latest analysis of the key challenges confronting schools and trusts in 2023 using insights and trends in governance from their 2023 survey. They present an overview of the changes over the past year, shedding light on the shifting priorities and emerging issues facing schools and trusts across the nation.
In this webinar, NGA explores what responsibilities the board hold in relation to school and trust estates, what the leading concerns are across the sector, and what boards can do about it. While many governing boards are considering a long-term approach to building and estate management, others are in need of urgent strategies to rectify major health and safety concerns.
To mark the end of Volunteers’ Week 2023 Governors for Schools teamed up with Independent Governor Support to host a free Q&A panel for school governance volunteers with questions about their role.
In this webinar, NGA Director of Advice and Guidance, Steve Edmonds explains how governing boards and school leaders work together to develop and review a strategy.
