The Excellence in Governance programme comprises 13 modules and is designed to provide a comprehensive training package for the whole governing  body. It addresses the key components and challenges that being a governor within a church school today presents. EiG supports both Ofsted’s current key criteria for governance and SIAMS core questions.

To be part of Excellence in Governance, governing bodies will need to sign up to the whole programme of training which will enable up to three governors to attend each module. You may then decide which members of your governing body will most benefit from each specific module depending on levels of experience, responsibility or school priority. It is expected that the governing body will complete the 13 modules over 24 months, starting in September 2018. To achieve EiG recognition, at least one governing body member must attend 10 out of the 13 modules. Further details are available in the current programme which can be found in the links below.

Excellence in Governance is outstanding value at £499 per school which covers up to three governors attending at least 10 of the 13 modules over the two-year cycle.
