The Northern Governance Conference 2019

16 May 2019

Venue: Durham County Cricket Club, Emirates Riverside Riverside, Chester Le Street DH3 3QR


Join around 300 of your colleagues from across the North and learn about key developments affecting your role. Now in its third year the Northern 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 of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards. With the considerable transformation of the education landscape and the changes to school structures, assessment, curriculum and statutory tsting, 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.


There will be plenty of time to meet new colleagues and expand your personal network, along with engaging with a range of specially selected provider organisations.
