How effectively do governors and supervisory bodies provide leadership, direction and challenge?

To make their judgements, inspectors will evaluate the extent to which:

  • governors and supervisory bodies set the mission and strategic direction of the provider
  • governors and supervisory bodies establish effective structures to monitor all aspects of the provider’s performance
  • governors and supervisory bodies ensure that their statutory duties – where applicable – are fulfilled.
