26 Mar National Governors’ Association and Modern Governor partner on new e-learning for Academy school governors
Modern Governor from Learning Pool today announced its sponsorship of the National Governors’ Association (NGA) and collaboration to produce online training for Academy school governors.
Emma Knights, Chief Executive Officer of the NGA commented “The support of Modern Governor is really important to us and we’re thrilled to be working together on some new e-learning modules around governing of Academy schools.”
The topics covered by the new modules are Converting to Academy Status and Academy Governance and will begin to be released from June.
Elaine Walton, Modern Governor’s Product Manager, said: “In a time of immense change for education and governance, I think the NGA offers tremendous support to governors. With a high number of schools converting to Academy status, our customers told us that they needed high-quality, interactive e-learning designed to support their Academy governors. The NGA was our natural choice for a partner on these modules, as they offer impartial information and guidance.”
Used by over 20,000 school governors nationwide, Modern Governor is an online training resource to help school governors understand the legislation and governance issues that accompany their role.
The National Governors’ Association supports local governor associations and governing bodies and lobbies ministers and policy makers on all policies that impact schools. It offers high-quality guidance, information, conferences and advice for governors and governance professionals.
