As an independent Association run by governors, we are aware of the challenges that governors face, both locally and nationally, and the various offers out there to support governors in carrying out their roles effectively.
We have produced a list of sites that we feel will be useful to all Governing Boards. Please note that the links will open in new windows and that BASG has no responsibility or control for any of the content that is on these websites.
