Over the course of the last few years, ineffective governance has been one of the most commonly occurring Ofsted criticisms of providers deemed to be ‘Inadequate’ or who ‘Require Improvement’.

Our experience and track record in supporting Colleges, Universities and Providers is unrivalled and our team act as Non-Executive Directors to over 20 organisations in the Education and Training industry.

However, whilst good governance is important for Ofsted, in our view an effective Governance Board should provide real organisational leadership: providing strategic direction, overseeing the achievement of important objectives (through the setting and monitoring of appropriate Key Performance Indicators) and supporting and challenging the executive as appropriate.

Our support has many strands including:

* Regular Seminars on Effective Governance for Post-16 organisations

* Governance Health Checks

* Board formation support

* Non-Executive Director Support
