Chairs of Governors’ Leadership Development Programme

Chairs of Governors’ Leadership Development Programme

DGP is working with the NGA to deliver the National Training Programme for Chairs of Governors and Aspiring Chairs (also appropriate for vice chairs and chairs of committees).

This programme has been developed by the National College for Teaching and Leadership/DfE. See -

This is an opportunity to develop leadership skills with school improvement as a key theme. It has been designed to help you focus on the essential elements of being an effective chair.

The course is in three units:

  • Unit 1 The role of the chair
  • Unit 2 Effective governance
  • Unit 3 School Improvement

The units are delivered by a mixture of three face-to-face training sessions plus on line and school based learning. See or more details.

Programme fee is the cost per governor, however, at the moment scholarships of £200 are available to all schools.
