Welcome and Introduction
A warm welcome to new visitors and those returning to this self assessment tool - a resource which addresses the very particular challenges and rewards of being a governor in higher education. There has never been a more pressing need for effective governors and this tool helps you to confirm the strengths you bring to the task and also to identify areas for developing knowledge and understanding of what is required in the dynamic and changing world of higher education.
The Leadership Foundation will support your governance engagement and the self-assessment profile that you create will guide discussion of your development needs and help you shape your developing contribution as you acquire skills and knowledge by the different routes that we signpost.
Whether you are a highly experienced governor just beginning your involvement in higher education or new to governorship, we encourage you to use this tool to reflect on the best way forward– and we wish you every success as a governor !
