Governance Training & Conferences

The provision of high-quality training for school governors has become increasingly important in recent years. Changes in legislation and guidance have stressed the need for more skilled and professional governing boards, and training is a vital part of that agenda.

In partnership with Billericay Teaching School Alliance, National Leaders of Governance provide professional, practical training solutions for governing boards that will help you govern with confidence.

Via a range of solutions, we provide high quality development opportunities for all types of Governing Boards, from individual schools, collaborative partnerships or groups of schools to Multi Academy Trusts.  Take a look at how we can best support the needs of your board.

> Annual Governance Conference 

The first of our Annual Governance Conference is planned for 21 November 2020.  With challenges of the current Covid-19 pandemic at the forefront of everyone’s mind, this conference aims to address challenges all boards will be facing in the future, particularly in light of schools closures, the subsequent re-opening and how to address the impact on our schools and our young people.


As we all adapt to new ways of working, we have pleased to announce that your training sessions have been adapted to be delivered as Webinar. Join one of our Webinars and experience our high quality training provision.
