Better Governor Forum

We have created our forum for you as governors, trustees, and clerks. The forum is a safe and secure platform where you can ask questions, clarify understanding and seek advice on any aspect of school governance. It provides a great opportunity for professional networking for all of us involved in school governance at all levels.

The forum is facilitated by our governance experts, who monitor and moderate content and contribute to discussion, often in real time. We moderate content so that you can always be certain that what you see on Better Governor is based on expert opinion, statute and best practice

Better Governor webinar - New to Chairing 22nd August

This Better Governor webinar is aimed at those governors who are; new to chairing, about to take up the role of chair, and vice chairs considering the role. The session is equally relevant for those in maintained schools, academies or free schools. We will focus on the role of the chair and key aspects of this including effective working with the headteacher and clerk to the governing board, as well as reflecting on how the chair provides strong leadership within the expectations that government has of the role. The webinar will be facilitated by our two governance experts; Steve Barker and Linda Waghorn and will be a mix of expert input, opinion polls and the opportunity to ask questions.
