Better Governor

We’re delighted that our ever popular Better Governor webinar series is once again running throughout the 2023/24 academic year. Moreover, we’ve scheduled seven support webinars designed to help you keep up with governance best practice and recent changes to the educational landscape.

Led by Better Governor experts Steve Barker and Linda Waghorn, the sessions will be running in their usual Thursday 8am slot each half-term. Additionally, you can find recordings from the Autumn term series below.

Recordings and slides from all Better Governor webinars will be made available shortly after the sessions take place.
