What are National Leaders of Governance (NLGs)?

What do NLGs do?

Topics that a Chair of Governors may want to work on with an NLG will vary according to context, but could be amongst the following:-

  • developing the Chairs’ leadership, effectiveness and confidence

  • reviewing governance procedures, protocols and behaviours

  • mentoring a Chair to provide support through a particular process

  • providing more effective support and challenge

  • developing the Chairs’ relationship with the Headteacher or Principal

  • raising standards and leading improvement

  • understanding and interpreting pupil performance data including RAISEonline


How can an nlg help me

How can an NLG help me?

  • The Chair identifies the topic on which they want coaching and/or mentoring

  • Chairs of Governors can request free support from an NLG by emailing [email protected]

  • The NLG will discuss with the Chair what they want, and they will both agree whether they can work together and how

  • The NLG will ask the Chair to confirm that the Headteacher is aware of the NLG’s input, and will agree who else needs to be aware of the support – the Local Authority, the Diocese, the Academy Trust, etc.

  • The NLG will provide support for an agreed period, according to the Chair’s requirements


What are the benefits of being an nlg

What are the benefits of being an NLG?

“The National Leader of Governance role has given me opportunities both to support other Chairs in bringing about improvement in their schools and also to reflect on and develop my own practice. It’s so important for the system that we share experience and this has been a great opportunity to do so.”

Ruth Agnew
