Governors gather for Trust Conference

Governors from across The Co-operative Academies will gather in Manchester on Saturday 21st June for the Trust's first Development Conference.

Delegates representing governing bodies at each of the Trust's seven academies will hear from keynote speakers including Mark Williams from Ofsted and Stan Johnson of Lancashire County Council.

'Ensuring that our governors have the right skills and knowledge to support the continued imrpovement of our Academies, and can provide leaders with robust yet supporting challenge, has never been more important,' said Frank Norris, Director of The Co-operative Academies Trust. 'While we've got some great speakers lined up to get people thinking about their role, I'm sure governors will also learn a great deal fom talking to each other about their role and the very different communities that our Academies serve.'
