There are over 6000 school governors in the region. They have enormous capacity and influence in school improvement work. We have worked with governors across the region to develop the regional support offer and to engage governing bodies in collaborative models like GIGs (Governor Improvement Groups, based on the SIG model). We have also trained and deployed consultant governors to support governing bodies who require additional capacity.
In 2018/19, we will continue to offer training programmes for governors and work with them to enable them to share their expertise and knowledge across the region.
