The Governor's Role in Supporting and Challenging a School

In this session, we will be exploring how to challenge the Senior Leadership Team through a healthy mix of active listening and focused questioning. The session is designed for the busy governor and to equip them with the tools of effective governance. Therefore, the course will be focused around the six key themes of Strategic Leadership, Accountability, People, Structures, Compliance and Evaluation.
By the end of the course learners will be able to

• Understand what effective support and challenge is
• Prepare for meetings in a way that is valuable to the schools’ leaders
• Construct questions that provide support through effective challenge

This course combines a mixture of activity and discussion to achieve maximum benefit for all learners. It is also a practical course that is designed to develop the skills and behaviours that builds the confidence and assertiveness of governors
