Join us, and your colleagues from across the region, for SCHOOLS NorthEast's inaugural Chairs of School Governance Conference. This conference will support Chairs in their key roles - state maintained and academy.



This new event in the SCHOOLS NorthEast calendar will allow delegates to network with their peers, swap best practice and discuss the most important issues facing governance nationally and within the region. This event will provide essential senior governance input into SCHOOLS NorthEast’s ongoing lobbying activities with government and other key organisations.


With the education landscape still undergoing significant transformation and changes to school structures, assessment, curriculum and statutory testing, it is now more important than ever for you, as key decision makers and leaders, to be up to date with the latest developments in education, policies and procedures.


This event is for Chairs, Vice Chairs, Head Teachers and CEOs only. These roles are key to the effectiveness of schools and of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards. 

Networking and Discussion

There will be allocated time during the conference to discuss the most important issues that delegates are facing currently. There will also be time during the evening to meet new colleagues and expand your personal network.
