At a time of national debate about the quality and role of governors in schools and colleges, we ask what do students need from school governors and are governors fit for the challenges of 21st century?
This discussion will be of interest to those currently in (or considering) a governance role within a UK school. Two high-level debates will be followed by Q&A and time will also be reserved for networking during the break.
