"The role (of a governor) is so important that amateurish governance will no longer do.  Good will and good intentions will only go so far.  Governing boards made up of people who are not properly trained and who do not understand the importance of their role are not fit for purpose in the modern and complex educational landscape."

Sir Michael Wilshaw - November 2015
