National Leaders of Governance

Mike Gee

National Leaders of Governance (NLG) are established, successful chairs of governors in schools and academies that have been judged by Ofsted to be good or better, who have applied through a rigorous selection process to support the development of leadership capacity in governing bodies requiring support, or in governing bodies where chairs are newly in post.  

Mike Gee, as an NLG,  actively seeks to support other governing bodies by working in partnership with local authorities, multi-academy trusts and teaching school alliances.  

He determines a support plan with the governing bodies with which they work and identify clear time-lines and targets for their support work.  He also supports governing bodies by undertaking external reviews of governance for schools and academies, where governance has been identified as a weakness in Ofsted inspection outcomes. 

At AET, Mike is Head of Governor Services and encourages successful chairs of governors in the Group to make applications for this accreditation so that support can be provided to improve governance across our group of academies.
