Are you confident and effective in your governance role?

The esteemed education journalist Laura McInerney wrote last week “the average person who takes on a school governor role is really being thrown into a massive deep cave and asked to map its insides using nothing but a lighter”. The fact it felt like that to Laura who is so knowledgeable made me sit up and take notice. Anyone would be delighted to recruit her to their board. As you would expect (after all it is my job) I continuously ponder how we can get useful information out to those that govern schools and how we can help our governors and trustees to develop their approach to governance.
