Welcome to Governance LIVE! virtual induction

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

Whilst an Ofsted inspection can be daunting, it’s important to remember that both Ofsted and governors have the same core goal – ‘achieving excellence in education’.

If you understand exactly what Ofsted are looking for and identify any issues before hand, then you’ll be prepared for anything.

We have designed this session to support you through this and ensure you know exactly what to expect.

The purpose of the session

The prospect of an Ofsted inspection is daunting for everyone, not least for the governing board or academy committee who will meet with inspectors and be expected to answer questions about the effectiveness of their organisation.   At the end of this session, participants should be confident about what Ofsted expects, what they as a governors, trustees or academy committee members need to know, and how the inspection process works.

What will the session cover?

  1. Learning what Ofsted expect from the governing board
  2. Exploring what ‘knowing your school’ means
  3. Understanding the inspection process
  4. Being prepared for the Ofsted visit
  5. Identifying any issues that need to be addressed prior to the inspection 

Who should attend?

Governors of maintained schools, trustees of single academy trusts, trustees and academy committee members of multi academy trusts

The clerk

The senior leadership team

This session is suitable for a number of schools to share although schools in multi academy trusts are strongly advised to book a bespoke session as it can then be aligned to their trust’s scheme of delegation

How will the session work?

This is a two hour session

All NGA sessions are interactive and so provide information, activities and opportunities for discussion
