Trust Governance Insight Network– a programme for trust governance professionals

We are delighted to share information on an annual programme of support for governance professionals.

Trust Governance Insight provides expert advice and support, helping you develop your skills and expertise and share perspectives with other academy governance professionals. The programme is led by sector specialists including Emma Perkin who helps lead the CST Governance Advisory Service. The programme of support consists of:

  • Regular workshops – a series of virtual and in-person day-long sessions providing training, tools and updates throughout the academic year
  • One-to-one mentoring – a call with one of our expert team after each workshop
  • Update bulletin – after each workshop, with resources, sector updates and case studies.

Trust Governance Insight runs in London and Manchester and the annual cost is £750. Bookings before September 2020 will receive a 10% early bird discount.
