Our award-winning Shaping Governance® is a practical and proven toolkit that will help you to improve the skills, confidence and impact of those that govern!

What is Shaping Governance®?

Shaping Governance is a highly effective, strategic governance improvement session that is making a demonstrable difference to the way that governing boards work, improving understanding of statutory duties, the school, its pupils and its challenges. It facilitates better working across and between governors and senior leaders, and creates collective understanding to the positives, as well as creating an action plan for improvement.

In just 2.5 hours, you can improve the effectiveness and impact of school and charity governance, through our award winning development sessions.

Our experience shows that governance is improved at a faster rate when focus is on developing the governing board as a whole, not just the Chair. This has also been evidenced by the RSA and their publication - Who governs our schools: Trends, Tensions and Opportunities - which cites that developing boards and school leaders together will maximise the effectiveness of leadership and governance. 

 

In 2017, we worked with schools to create a short but effective development session, that enhances the skills, confidence and impact of those that govern! Since its launch, our now award-winning Shaping Governance® has been delivered to 100’s of school governors, and has received a 4.96 / 5 ‘Diamond’ rating from its users; with users citing its simplicity and effectiveness as key outputs.

How does it work?

Through an interactive 2.5 hour development session, boards and senior leaders work together to discuss nine elements of governance - reflecting core roles, statutory duties and important areas from the Ofsted framework.  The Shaping Governance® technique uses these themes, and interactive working groups to address all 16 competencies in the Government’s Competency Framework.

Three versions of this strategic governance team building session have been created for:

Schools

Exploring nine areas of governance, learning, sharing and improving

SIAMS Framework

Exploring the new framework, learning and identifying excellence

Charities

Exploring and aligning to the National Charity Governance

Code
