Governors are a crucial part of the leadership of schools. They have an enormous capacity and influence in school improvement. The Central South Consortium aims to provide a range of evidence-informed professional learning opportunities and support and guidance for governors. Also, there is a range of regional professional learning opportunities for governors that can be accessed via the Hwb digital platform.

N.B. To access the Hwb platform for governors, please contact the School’s Digital Champion, who will be able to create an account for you.

In addition, there is Welsh Government guidance to support school governors and information on the laws relating to school governance.
