Training and development for chairs

NGA Consultancy and Training can help chairs to develop their skills in a number of ways. We offer face-to-face training on the role of the chair and how an individual can chair effectively. NGA has also developed an online appraisal tool, the Chair's 360 appraisal, from which chairs can evaluate their own performance and identify areas for development. 

NGA offers the following options for chairs to develop their knowledge and skills: 

Effective chairing

A two hour session designed to be delivered to governing board chairs and prospective chairs. It is suitable for more than one governing board to share the session.  It can be personalised to suit your school or trust’s circumstances.

Online 360° chair’s appraisal tool

A 360 degree appraisal provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights into your leadership strengths and development needs. All NGA’s online self-review tools include a telephone mentoring session with an NGA consultant.
