This virtual event is specifically designed for Chairs and all governors who wish to understand more about how they can assure the quality of education and the student experience appropriately in the light of recent events.

  • Advance HE experts in teaching and learning sharing evidence on educational developments in the last year and the questions these raise
  • Student perspectives on the evidence about lived-experiences in UK HE
  • Governor and secretary perspectives and lessons learned on actions taken to achieve effective assurance by the Board
  • Regulator insights about expectations and key issues we need to consider. 

The event will be an interactive session with opportunity for governors to network in an online environment and share their views as well as ask questions of speakers and each other.
