National Leaders of Governance (NLG)

The TSC regions have been commissioned by the DfE to deliver the NLG Brokerage service and support commission. NLGs are the DfE’s current mechanism to provide school-to-school/peer-to-peer support to improve the quality of governance, including through the School Improvement (SI) Offer.

The purpose of this commission is to effectively manage brokerage of NLG support, so that the existing capacity is managed as effectively as possible and access to governance improvement support is available to schools ahead of, and through any transition period.

In addition to this commission, during AY1920 the DfE plan to provide briefings to NLGs in three key areas:

  • SI Support Offer
  • MAT Governance
  • Financial management and efficiencies

Following an expressions of interest (EOI) process to fulfil the NLG brokerage service and support commission across the region, George Spencer Teaching School have been appointed to deliver this service.

Message from NLG Support and Broker, Tammy Elward

NLGs play a critical role in the School Improvement offer 2019/2020 and development and improvement of governance in schools. To support the sharing of information and growing relationships to support the offer, we are looking to;

  • Update the regional database
  • Create an Anthology
  • Host a webinar briefing

Updating the Regional Database

We would like to be able to share NLG details and information with NLEs and schools in our region. With your permission, we want to ensure that NLEs and schools know which NLGs are available with what skill sets and support them being able to engage with the support you offer.

Anthology - Finalising Information for Sharing in the Region

We are producing a booklet to be shared with NLEs and schools on the Teaching School website. The document is accessible on a google drive link which we will share with those who have completed the survey update and given consent for their details to be included.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the NLG Broker and Support Service on the contact details below;
