Welcome to the Clerk to Governors website!

Latest news from Shena Lewington, the pen behind C2G.

  • Want to be the first to get new posts by email? You can subscribe to my blog. (See top right)
  • The summer 2015 term is a busy one – I’ll be delivering induction and refresher training for governors in the north west, as well as supporting clerks and GBs in other parts of the country.  (If you’re very lucky, I may even dedicate one of my poems or songs to your GB or team of clerks!)
  • I will be presenting a workshop on effective questioning at the Optimus conference in Leeds on 14th October. In June I’ll be working with clerks in Essex.
  • I am delivering the new Clerks’ Development Programme,  for Leading Governance (For clerks in Cumbria, and in Stoke-on-Trent and Cheshire West and Chester)
  • External reviews of governance are not just for schools who have been “recommended” to have one by Ofsted – they can be a valuable investment for any governing body wanting to reflect on and improve its performance. Contact me for more information.
