At the forefront of national governance thinking and innovation, GGI is now firmly established in the higher education sector as a leading provider of governing body and senate reviews, working across Russell Group, Chartered and Post-92 institutions in all four nations of the UK.

Our approach is that any governance review needs to be part of continuous institutional improvement. Increasingly, our work is focused on improvement and has moved on from just review.

The CUC Higher Education Code of Governance (and the Scottish Code of Good HE Governance) recommends that institutions must conduct an independent review of their governance effectiveness at least every four years.

In the current operating climate, all higher education institutions (HEIs) must be particularly alert to the need to review their governance structures, systems, and processes to ensure that they are responsive and fit-for-purpose.

GGI provides specialist advice and support in guiding and assisting HEIs in this process, drawing on our in-depth knowledge and expertise of governance, leadership and strategic development in education other sectors.

We have commissioned the Good Governance Institute (GGI) several times and have been impressed with their growth in range and depth of expertise over the years. GGI stands out from other governance-centred consultancies in that they adopt a collaborative and tailored approach, show a real interest  in their client’s work and challenges, and are committed to the provision of tools and recommendations which will make a real and positive difference ...

Your feedback

I have found GGI to be extremely well connected and a useful source of information and counsel with regard to negotiating one’s way through the complexities of the NHS. In addition, they have shown themselves to be flexible and capable of providing a broad range of services beyond that which their name alone suggests.
