Annual Governance Conference 2021

Wednesday 24 & Thursday 25 March 2021

The SNE annual Governance Conference will once again be held as an online conference for 2021 and we are looking forward to you joining us virtually.


A  unique opportunity for professional development for your entire Governing Body. Chairs, Trustees, experienced and brand new Governors are all welcome, there will be speakers and sessions relevant to everyone and you don't need to be from the North East to join us. 


Book your whole team on to the event from as little as £100 and have the recordings to share throughout the year at your meetings and for future new Governors.

All delegate and school bookings will receive recordings of all content along with a CPD certificate.





Join your colleagues from across the region and beyond and learn about key developments affecting your role. Now in its fifth year the SNE annual Governance conference will support those in school governance roles – state-maintained and academy – in carrying out their duties confidently and effectively.


Being a school governor or trustee is a hugely rewarding role.  However, there has never been greater pressure on school governors of all types to ensure that the children in their schools receive the best possible education.

Governing boards are key to the effectiveness of schools and multi academy trusts and of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards. With the considerable transformation of the education landscape, the huge disruption caused by Covid 19 and the looming post lockdown challenges, it is now more important than ever for governors to be up to date on the latest policies and procedures.


If you are a Chair, Vice Chair, Trustee, Head Teacher, lead or parent governor in maintained schools or academies, ensure that you are able to provide clarity of vision and strategic direction, hold the head teacher to account, and oversee the financial performance of your school.


This event is targeted at Chairs, Vice Chairs, Governors and Head Teachers.

This event is also aimed at senior leaders who want to make sure they have a high performing governing board and those looking to recruit new governors.
