School Governor Conference

Tue, 23 May 2017 13:59:00 BST

The School Governor Initiative, one of the University’s Key Signature Programmes, held the 5th Annual School Governor Conference at Chancellors Conference Centre on Thursday 27 April 2017.

The conference was attended by 75 delegates and we welcomed governors from within our staff network, invited Chairs and Vice-Chairs and guests from Manchester City Council and Inspiring Governance. We had a range of excellent speakers and workshop leaders both from within The University of Manchester and from local schools and external organisations. The conference was formally opened by Dr Tim Westlake, Director for the Student Experience at The University of Manchester.

The day was an excellent opportunity for all those who attended to gain new knowledge and perspectives on the changing landscape of education and we hope it helped our school governors to focus on some of the key issues and challenges facing schools and leaders in education. The University now has a staff network of almost 200 school and college governors and over 350 school governors amongst our Alumni.
