High quality effective and ethical governance is key to success in our school system. The purpose of governance is to provide confident and strong strategic leadership which leads to robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

This workshop aims to develop understanding of:

  • The top 10 characteristics of effective governance
  • The duties and accountabilities of governance
  • Practical measures to support effective governance

This workshop is facilitated by Cathy Brown who is Head of Governance at The Mead Educational Trust. Cathy has almost 20 years’ experience as a school governor and chair of governors in both maintained schools and academies, at primary and secondary levels. She also has experience as a trustee in a multi-academy trust. She supports chairs of governors as a National Leader of Governance and is an experienced trainer for governors and clerks.
