Course aim
This course is essential for all new governors and has been restructured to focus more strongly on School Improvement, reflecting recent changes in education. As a result, it is also a useful refresher for more experienced governors. The aim of the induction course is not only to inform delegates of the principles of governance, but also to give practical guidance on how all governors can take part in leading their school, in partnership with their headteacher. Delegates require no prior knowledge of governance, but our course tutors modify their approach to suit participants’ needs. This training is free to governors whose school subscribe to Governor Training, otherwise the cost is £550 per governor.
Pre-course Information
Lunch is provided.

Part 1 of the course explores the purpose of governance, considering the governing board’s statutory responsibilities, and introducing the Three Roles of Governance.

Part 2 is the core of the course, explaining your governing board’s strategic role in holding the school to account for how well pupils learn. The course lays out in plain english how a school leadership team (including the governing board) evaluates its school’s strengths and weaknesses, and then determines its improvement priorities. Delegates will discover how different sources of information and advice are available to help governors monitor progress.

Part 3 provides an introduction to your governing board’s role in overseeing budget and staffing matters. In addition, this module also provides practical advice on delegating tasks across the team, and running effective meetings.
