A popular series of one day seminars provides training for both new and established governors, heads and heads designate, and other members of the senior management team who are preparing themselves for high office. The seminars are held over a wide geographical area and each offers talks by experienced governors and professionals, under the chairmanship of one of the AGBIS Board members. These seminars offer time for organised discussion and problem-solving, as well as time for governors to share experiences on a more informal basis. Each seminar usually begins at 10.00 am for coffee and registration, with the first speaker at 10.25 am. The day concludes by 4.00 pm.

'Effective governance is integral to every school. Yet given the day to day pressures influencing schools, it is easy to lose sight of the educational landscape affecting a school's long term strategic goals. The AGBIS Strategy Seminar helped me reassess and refresh my insights into strategic thinking and governance, updating my professional expertise and capacity. I came away from the seminar with renewed understanding of how to be effective in fulfilling my responsibilities as a governor and re-energised for the tasks ahead'. - Peggy Field, Governor, Ditcham Park School -
As a former secondary head teacher and senior educational adviser, I wish to congratulate you on your first-class presentation 'Governors' Roles and Responsibilities'. The combination of information, knowledge and guidance was excellent, and extremely clear for governors whatever their background. The PowerPoint is a superb distillation of complex material, being both concise and comprehensive. It will empower course participants as they return to their work of governance in their own schools. - Peter Hawthorne, Governor, Wolverhampton Grammar School -
Your "Guidelines for Governors" document is a bible and the seminar I have attended have been excellent. - John Shinkwin, Governor, Prior Park Schools -
