Peer Challenge for Governors

A facilitated peer review model which enables governing bodies to learn from each other and benefit from peer support for school improvement.

MTSA Chairs of Governors have developed, piloted and evaluated a Peer Challenge and Review framework.

Working in triads, governors work collaboratively to review an improvement theme in each school, supporting the school’s own self-evaluation and sharing expertise.

The model builds powerful and trustful relationships between governors who visit each other’s schools and often leads to on-going collaboration and sharing of expertise beyond the initial review.

You can access the evaluation of the pilot and guidance on setting up your own trial below.

Schools can either develop their own triads, or we can work with you to broker links with other appropriate schools. If you are interested in participating in the Peer Challenge programme and would like more information, please contact us.
