Local Leader of Governance


If you have a proven track record of being an effective governor and can evidence the impact your governance has had on outcomes for pupils, then we would like to invite you to apply to become a Local Leader of Governance (LLG).


The Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance is looking for enthusiastic, experienced Governors to further improve the school to school support provision for governance in our region.
