NGA guides

These essential guides will introduce new governors, academy committee members and chairs to their roles and responsibilities and are a useful reference tool for those with more experience.

Welcome to Governance

This induction guide contains everything new governors and academy committee members need to know about their roles. With guidance for maintained schools and academies, it is the most popular induction resource.

The Chair’s Handbook

This essential guide covers all aspects of the role for aspiring, new and experienced chairs, including how to lead the governing board.

“A valuable resource for thousands of new governors.”

Lord Nash, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools
