Learn, Share, Benchmark and Improve - all in one two-hour session!

Why spend valuable resources on separate induction, training, and improvement planning for your governing board.

Our award-winning two-hour Shaping Governance sessions do all this and more.  


The sessions help Governors to learn, share and improve across nine areas of the school and its governance, in a timely and efficient manner.  Governors focus on core role, Ofsted framework and other key areas.

We even write up and present you with an improvement plan and recommendations on how to implement, using our vast bank of good practice!

The success and response from schools and an award win, has led to a new membership service for our school governance customers.  We have created a dedicated website for Shaping Governance®, click here to be taken to our membership site.
