Our approach to governance

Trust in Learning fully supports the importance of local governance of schools and academies – outstanding schools have outstanding governance and leadership.

The establishment of a Local Governing Body to fully support day to day leadership is a cornerstone of our approach to improving schools. Governors are valued members of the TiL network and have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of young people through education.

Trust in Learning will fully support the Local Governing Body to establish strong, effective and knowledgeable governance and use its wider resources to help provide additional governance where this is sought or needed.

As a group of schools working together ‘governor learning’ is seen as an important aspect of our work and our commitment to our schools and cross-school professional development for governors is a regular feature of our work together.

For further information please read our booklet Governance within Trust in Learning (Academies)
