We provide a blend of training courses, workshops and briefings which will assist all governors and clerks to gain the skills necessary to effectively support their schools.
Getting off to a good start – the value of induction training
Every year we welcome approximately 80 new school governors. All are sent induction packs of information and are invited to attend induction training. We know from experience and feedback that governors who attend the induction training gain a better understanding of their role and can therefore benefit their governing body by being more effective at an earlier stage in their term of office. Please take advantage of the sessions offered to you in your welcome letter.
All governors receive a copy of the governor and clerk training programme which is updated termly:
