The NLG scheme is being revised. All existing NLGs (including Jon Hairsine and Tony Hillyard) have had their designation removed effective 31 August 2021.
New applications were invited including existing NLGs administered by NGA. Applications closed on 29th July 2021
The newly designated NLGs from end September 2021will be paid for their work and will be completing ERG (External reviews of Governance) for those GBs as prescribed by the DfE starting October 2021
A group of historic NLGs decided they did not wish to be part of the new scheme and have set up a new group see www.independentgovernor.com
They have come together as they wished to continue to offer a no strings attached mentoring service to all governors/trustees/Governing boards and did not want the system to lose this support.
