National Leaders of Governance (NLGs)

NLGs focus on developing leadership capacity. In some cases, they work in partnership with a NLE.

NLGs often provide support to a chair of governors, the governing body and Headteacher in the school.  Examples of support could include the following:

  • Ofsted or Local Authority category – or at risk of going into one
  • attainment is below the current minimum standards set by the Government
  • transition to academy status
  • the Chair of Governors is new
  • working practices for a Chair, Headteacher or Leadership Group need developing
  • Coaching and mentoring of the chair and the governing body
  • Providing an in-depth External Review of Governance
  • Supporting a governing body through a challenging period
