If you are looking for bespoke support for your governing body or board of trustees, NGA’s team of knowledgeable and experienced governance consultants will help.
Our expert support can be delivered remotely or in person.
External reviews of governance
An external review of governance will identify your board’s strengths and areas for development, providing a roadmap for improvement. NGA has extensive experience of undertaking reviews for multi academy trusts, single academy trusts and maintained school governing bodies, as well as the boards of other charitable trusts and organisations.
Headteacher or CEO performance management
NGA consultants are experienced in fulfilling the role of external advisor to your board when you are evaluating the performance of your headteacher or CEO and agreeing their future objectives. For this work, we will carefully match the consultant’s knowledge and experience to your board’s context.
Facilitation of board away days
Many boards schedule in away days or similar events each year. They often use this time away from routine business to review their vision and strategy, to team build, and to reflect on their own effectiveness. NGA consultants can facilitate these sessions, providing advice and materials to make the event a productive use of everyone’s time.
Governance expert retainer
NGA can arrange for a governance consultant to provide regular advice and support to your board throughout the year. The nature of the support will be agreed in advance, with the option to extend the scope of the provision and the time allowance.
'‘I have been continually impressed by the professional, well-organised and astute perception demonstrated by the tutor throughout the whole process’'
