Local Associations

Representative bodies, such as governor associations or fora, within a Local Authority (LA) area, serve a valuable purpose in at least four respects:

  • they provide an opportunity for governors from every school in their LA to form a professional network and share good practice from their own governing bodies and schools;
  • they are a vehicle for discussion of the latest education developments in their LA and the education sector nationally;
  • they are effective ‘sounding boards’ for Governors Wales, the LA and the Welsh Government to consult on strategic and policy issues affecting schools, governance and the quality of education provision; and
  • they provide a mechanism for governors to become fully engaged with officers of the LA to improve school effectiveness and learner outcomes.
