Staff Network

We have established an internal network for staff who already work as governors. The network meets 3 times a year and here you can share experiences and best practice in order to maximise your impact on schools. We have regular guest speakers to help with your professional development as a governor. All governors are welcome.


Annual conference

In addition to our meetings, there is an annual conference for staff who are school governors. Last year's conference took place on Thursday 27 April 2017 at Chancellors Conference Centre. Presentations can be viewed here.


The next conference is scheduled for 26 April 2018, the booking form is now open, please contact Alison Gregory for further information.
