Effective Governance launched at FASNA Summer Conference June 28, 2013

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Conferences, New releases.

DSC_6302John Catt Educational Chairman Jonathan Evans and I were delighted to be at the FASNA Summer Conference yesterday at the British Library, the perfect venue to celebrate the release of our latest publication.

Effective Governance, a joint venture between FASNA and John Catt Educational, is a practical workbook with case studies and real examples of how good governance can help schools on the road to ‘outstanding’. More information can be found on the post below.

Editor Joan Binder, East of England Governor of the Year in 2007 and chair of governors of a large 11 – 18 secondary converter academy in Essex, took to the stage to thank the contributors of case studies to the book, many of whom were in the audience and were presented with their copy.

The Conference was a lively debate with Gove and Twigg pressed by Heads on a number of pertinent matters relating to: funding; Local Authorities; governance; terms and conditions for teachers; and future policy.

Effective Governance can be purchased via the John Catt Bookshop, Amazon and other leading bookstores. It is also available on Amazon Kindle.
