Thinking Governance is about enabling governors to step back, develop a radically-new strategic vision for the school, together – and then embed that into a highly-practical (and short!) plan.

Each version of the programme has modules, which take governing bodies on a journey from thinking about those big concepts to putting them into action.

  • Thinking Governance has four modules, taking 7-8 hours to complete
  • Thinking Governance Express has two modules, taking 3 hours to complete

Given all the other pressures governors and leaders are under, we recommend the Thinking Governance Express version to you.

 In either case, you ideally need a facilitator (either from within the governing body, from your diocese or from a partner school) to guide the programme.

Programme developer Mark Craig also leads Thinking Governance and Thinking Governance Express workshops for schools, DBEs and MATs – his contact details are here.
