Newport Educational

What do you need?

Newport Educational is committed to improving and supporting good governance. We consistently demonstrate this commitment by providing the highest quality, bespoke governor training and support in the UK along with Professional Reviews of Governance, Governor Mark Assessments and School Improvement Reviews. Most of the team are currently, or have been, school governors themselves, or have worked very closely with governors in both maintained schools and colleges and Academies. We truly understand the nature of governance, the challenges it brings, the extraordinary hard work it involves and most of all, we understand and recognise the vital significance of really good governance to the maintenance of school improvement, success and improved outcomes for children.

We have an experienced and supportive team here at Newport Educational who are passionate about good governance, have hands-on understanding of the role of a governor, and provide extensive professional in-the-field experience with training expertise. Your training and support needs are tailored, designed and delivered to meet your specific needs.

Tell us what you need - we are ready to help you deliver the best possible governance for your school.
