Module 4

Swansea8-by-Alex-Baker-PhotographyIndicators of change

This fourth and final module of the Thinking Governance programme helps governors complete the strategic plan, which was begun on Module 3.

In doing that, it completes the journey from the ‘blank page’ development of new aims and the ‘strategic picture’ of Module 1 to the finalising of a strategic plan which forms a dramatic, new narrative for governors to use.

That journey has also been informed by the consideration of school culture and power structures undertaken in Module 2.

This is the last step in the journey – and it is an important one.
