The SCHOOLS NorthEast Northern Governance Conference 2018

Friday 20 April 2018, St James' Park, Newcastle






Governing boards are key to the effectiveness of schools and of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards. With the considerable transformation of the education landscape and the changes to school structures, assessment, curriculum and statutory testing, it is now more important than ever for governors to be up to date on the latest policies and procedures.

Join us, and over 300 colleagues from across the region, for SCHOOLS NorthEast’s Northern Governance Conference 2018. This conference will support those in school governance roles and will also provide advice to school leaders.



Keynote speakers:

Laura McInerney, Schools Week
Julia Harnden, ASCL


Now in its second year the Northern Governance conference will support those in school governance roles – state-maintained and academy – in carrying out their duties confidently and effectively.
