19 Jun NGA conference Saturday 17th June 2012
Modern Governor spent Saturday at the NGA Policy conference in London and met lots of governors who are using our e-learning to improve the skills and knowledge of their governing bodies.
These lovely ladies were full of praise for our modules and couldn’t wait to get back and tell their colleagues about the two new modules Safeguarding and child protection and Conversion to Academy Status that we have just added to the catalogue.

The keynote speaker was OFSTED Chief Inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw Strong governance: learning from the best who shared his views on school governance and in particular the new inspection framework with delegates (and the wider governor community via Twitter and the numerous Tweeters in the audience) and provoked animated discussions long after question time and into the coffee break. The conference presentations are all available here on the NGA website.
Modern Governor officially launched the first module covering Conversion to Academy Status at the conference, written in conjunction with the NGA. A second module covering Academy Governance will be available later this month.
