Enhancing the capabilities of technical education in India


The Good Governance Programme and governance website actively promotes the sharing of experiences nationally and internationally.

Materials will be added to the governance website to support institutions as they work to develop and strengthen their governance practices. Here we add additional reports and features which we hope will extend institution's understanding of key developments and challenges - either in India or Internationally.

We hope these materials, and other resources, including the short interviews available on the website offer perspectives and insights for governing body chairs and members, and institutional and national leaders to assist their work in guiding and stengthening instititutions.

If you have further suggestions for sharing experiences please Contact Us.

Self-review is a key activity and output of the Good Governance Programme through which institutions can examine their current governance practice. Self-review can be undertaken regularly (for example every 3 -5 years).

Supporting governance development needs of individual governors, governing bodies, institutions and States is a key activity of this and other national and regional initiatives. Another output of the Good Governance Programme is a Governance Development Plan to see how governance development is built into institutional development through clear, timebound action planning.



Implementing good governance practice is the primary outcome of the Good Governance Programme demonstrated by institutions developing their own governance guidelines which sets out institutional governance practices based on the Good Practice Guide for Governing Bodies. This would include a process and timetable for monitoring and reviewing governance practise.
Sharing experience underpins and supports the Good Governance Programme through good governance learning forums, sharing of institutional case studies of good practice, highlighting common gaps, barriers and issues, and helping institutions to learn from one another.
