School Details


Training can be delivered via face-to-face and online workshops by NGA consultants. Our workshops are easily accessible and designed to be both interactive and engaging. They provide the opportunity to learn with fellow governors and trustees on a virtual or face-to-face basis.

Session impact

Trustees need to understand school and trust funding, to be aware of their responsibilities as a trustee for financial oversight, and to ensure that their school organisation gets value for money whilst making an impact – no small ask for any trust board.
