National Leaders of Governance (NLG)

National Leaders of Governance (NLG) are highly effective Chairs of Governors, who use their skills and experience to support Chairs of Governors in other schools and academies. They work to increase leadership capacity to help raise standards so that improvements can be sustained. A fact sheet with further details of the role is attached herewith. The DfE via NCTL are now seeking applications for Cohort 5 of the NLG Programme.

Please note that the eligibility criteria document for this cohort is attached, and has been amended to clarify that the time commitment required for the role is ‘to provide support for the equivalent of approximately 10 days per academic year’, and an explanatory note indicates that ‘The 10 days can be delivered through part days, during evenings or at week-ends, and through phone calls and emails as well as face to face.’
