All events we facilitate, whether face-to-face or online via webcam, are individually tailored and delivered by experienced governance professionals - our sessions are always interactive, with delegates able to ask questions and take part in discussions. 


We are also happy to signpost our members to - and give honest reviews of - external providers and other training available elsewhere.

Wed 6th July,  morn: 11-12pm 

Tues 12th July, lunch: 12-1pm   (repeat)


The VMFI tool provides insights into the financial position and performance of your school/Trust.  It identifies areas that may require further attention and matches each school's data with relevant guidance and resources. This webinar will include a demonstration of the tool, highlights of its key features and an open Q&A session.  

The tool is something that ALL governors/trustees should know about and be able to use - not just those on finance committees! Session delivered via Microsoft Teams.


This free, one-hour webinar is provided by the DfE for all governors, trustees and clerks. The webinar will be recorded with copies emailed to registered delegates following the session.

Polite Reminder! 
Life happens and we all have to cancel bookings from time to time.
In order to provide the service we do and to keep costs to a minimum for all schools, viability of each event is always carefully measured, and by default each is delegate-number dependent. We’re grateful to the majority of our members who always respect this and book responsibly, letting us know in good time if they are unable to make an event. To protect events against those who don’t however, please be aware that last-minute or unexpected delegate drop-outs for chargeable events may still incur fees; these are determined on a sliding scale depending on notice of cancellation, with bookings cancelled on the day of the event or no-shows remaining payable in full. Late cancellations or no-shows for free-to-members events incur administration fees.
