e-Learning for Governors

The National Governance Association (NGA) is partnering with Virtual College, one of the UK's top e-learning providers, to deliver an innovative e-learning portal for Governors, Trustees and Clerks.

As a School Governor you can access the Learning Link at your convenience, which gives you greater flexibility to choose when and where you train or seek information. 

Learning Link supplements rather than replaces conventional face-to-face training days and provides the opportunity to request further training or information and support.
