Shaping Governance creates better team working between governors and senior leaders,
in all schools and phases. It helps to develop an understanding of what works well,
and where improvements can be made.
Shaping Governance was created and launched in 2017. It was developed with two Cheshire Schools, making it a focused and effective development session. The short two-hour sessions enhance the skills, confidence and impact of those that govern!
Since its launch, Shaping Governance has been delivered to 100s of groups of school governors nationally, that’s over 1000 governors. It has a solid 5 ‘Diamond’ rating from its users. Our customers love it for its simplicity, effectiveness and the immediate impact it brings.
Shaping Governance is a highly effective strategic governance improvement session that is making a demonstrable difference to school governance. It helps to improve governor understanding of statutory duties, the school, its pupils, its community, and its challenges. It facilitates better team working across governors and senior leaders in all schools and phases. Using a tried and tested technique, governors create a collective understanding of what is working well, and where improvements are needed.
There are different versions of Shaping Governance dependent on the school setting, including a Multi-Academy Trust version. The MAT version supports local boards to review their practice, and supports Directors and Trustees to consider whole trust improvements.
