All Programmes

Are the programmes available throughout England?

Yes. The NGA runs programmes in every region of England. You can view our past and present locations on the interactive maps.
 

Where are the cohorts located?

NGA is working with partners across England to run cohorts in all regions. If there are no cohorts in your area please register your interest and state your preferred location (e.g. Birmingham and Coventry area) and we will be in touch with further details of your closest cohorts.
 

Development for Clerks

Is the programme only suitable for those who are currently in a clerking role?

Yes. To begin the programme, you will need to be a clerk with at least 3 months experience and be associated with a school, as there is a school based project included in the programme.
 

When can I start the programme?

We have cohorts currently available for our Development for Clerks programmes. If there are no cohorts available in your area please register your interest and we will be in touch when we have a cohort in your area.
 

Development for Chairs

What do I do if I do not have a Governor ID?

To apply for a place on the Development for Chairs or Development for Boards programme, you need to be registered on the Get Information About Schools website and have a Governor ID number.

Check whether your school has registered you on the Get Information About Schools (GIAS) website by searching for your name.

If your name and school appear in the results, click on the ‘download these search results’ option at the top right of the screen and follow the instructions. Once you have downloaded the results, you will be able to see your Governor ID number against your name and school in column C of the spreadsheet generated.

If you do not appear in this search, you have not been registered on the website by your school. You will need to contact your school administrator and ask them to register you – they will then be able to provide you with your Governor ID number. The DfE have provided a User Guide that should aid them in doing this.
 

Development for Boards

When can I start the programme?

Register for a place on the Development for Boards Programme. If there are no cohorts available in your area for your chair you can still apply and we will allocate your chair a cohort when it becomes available.
