Feedback from members persistently indicates a lack of clarity on the role of the chair of the governing board, along with requests for NGA to provide a role description.
We have therefore produced a description of the role of chair, detailing the tasks that they will be expected to complete.
If you are a chair or an aspiring chair, have a look and see how the role description matches the responsibilities that you currently have or plan to take on. Just as our governor role description is proving useful for governing boards in recruitment, we hope that the chair's role description will also prove useful for succession planning, identifying governors who may be suitable for the role and finding areas for their future development.
