I have been a school governor for 25 years and chair of governors at my local secondary school for 15 years.
My career was in the IT sector working for an international IT service provider.
I am currently chair of Derbyshire School Governors Association and also Derbyshire Schools Forum.
I firmly believe in the benefits of CPD and continue to work on developing my own skills and knowledge as a governor by attending briefings, conferences and seminars.
I have a particular interest in analysing school data.
Having been through the highs and lows of 5 Ofsted inspections I am happy to share my experiences with Governors in similar situations.
