Who is this guide for?
Quite simply, whether you’re a chair or prospective chair, this guide is essential reading. Also suitable for vice chairs and committee chairs, you’ll find in this guide everything you need to improve your knowledge about the role.’
“It is vital that chairs understand their role and the unique influence they have to shape the way in which their board governs in the best interests of every child. We need chairs who can lead their boards and schools confidently into the future of our increasingly autonomous and school-led system, including through the process of converting to academy status and forming multi-academy trusts. NGA's guide is a helpful resource for both current and prospective chairs.
Lord Nash, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools
