The Leadership Foundation in Wales runs a series of programmes and events over the course of the academic year.
Governors of Welsh institutions face the difficult challenge of horizon-scanning to ensure the long term sustainability of their HEis. At the same time, they confront the immediacy of governance responsibilities with respect to public good and promoting and protecting reputation, all in a climate of competition and turbulent change.
