The Cardiff Governors Association funds its own activities and programme through an annual subscription fee of £50 per school for membership of the CGA. Subscribing schools are entitled to send governors free of charge to the annual training conference, seminars and workshops and to receive occasional papers on key issues of importance to school governors, for example the pupil deprivation grant; parental support and engagement and the like.

The advantages for school governing bodies of membership of the CGA include:

  • being part of an effective vehicle expressing the views, concerns and hopes of governing bodies in Cardiff to the local authority, the Consortium, the Welsh Government and Governors Wales
  • involvement in programmes and activities which facilitate exchanges of ideas and best practice and thus help promote the development of skills and expertise in individual governors and governing bodies
  • involvement, under the auspices of the CGA, in a range of activities, such as workshops, seminars, training courses, and being able to influence the proceedings and outcomes of such gatherings of governors and, by so doing, developing a more resourceful and skilful approach to school governance

To become a member of the Cardiff Governors Association and for details of its programme, please contact for an application form.
