Development for Boards Programme

The NGA Leading Governance Development for Boards' programme is funded by the Department for Education and is designed for boards governing multi-academy trusts or groups of schools, or boards of schools requiring improvement. This is a consultant-led, bespoke programme, that will be tailored to your board’s circumstances, to improve practice and outcomes.

This is a bespoke programme designed for those who are governing in more complex circumstances. The chair or future chair of the governing board will join a development programme for chairs, and will work closely with a consultant analysing an online board self-evaluation, the results of which will inform an action plan for the governing board’s development. In addition, the consultant will engage with the whole board and senior leaders so that any further support such as coaching, mentoring and subject-specific training needs can be identified and provided.

This programme consists of development for the board over a period of approximately three terms.

Funding is available up to the value of £2,000. Please contact the NGA to enquire about eligibility for this. Email:
