Welcome to DAG

The Devon Association of Governance (DAG) is the association of school governing bodies in the Devon Local Authority (LA) geographical area with over 4000 members.

DAG membership is free and automatic for any school governors, trustees and similar school governance volunteers together with clerks in a governing board within the Devon LA, whether Maintained school, Academy or with another designation.

However, each individual is required to manually register in this website to access its resources, read news articles and receive the automatic e-newsletter.

DAG associate membership is available for schools outside the Devon LA geographical area.

On Tuesday 11th February 2020 we will be holding a free Ofsted Framework Seminar at Tiverton High School at 6pm. The speaker will be Karl Sampson, Assistant Regional Director in Ofsted’s South West Regional Management Team and Senior HMI Link for Devon. To book your place just click here.
