The State of School Governance

The State of School Governance

Our expert panel joined the Leader's Town Hall at the Schools & Academies Show in London 2022 explore the state of school governance following the impact of the pandemic and what the governor workforce looks like across the country.

The panel session focuses on the following key areas:

  • Has the role of Governors and Trustees changed due to the challenging past two years?
  • Is there need for a professionalisation of the role, with adequate training
  • Should the Department play a role in this?
  • Are School governors prepared for schools to transition to academies?
  • Are School governors held accountable enough for their schools?
