This course is essential for all new governors and is also a great refresher course for those who have been involved in governance for longer.
To complete the training, Induction A and Induction B must be completed.
Among other things, this course will look at:
• The purpose of governance
• The board’s roles and responsibilities
• Holding the school to account
The organisation of the board
It will also provide the background information around supporting your Headteacher with personnel matters, such as managing staff performance, and it will consider the expectations of governors around employment hearings.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions around managing other HR issues that may arise.
This course is relevant for all maintained boards although all schools are very welcome.
We would strongly recommend that the Chair and/or the Vice-Chair from each school attends this session.
This training is free to governors whose school subscribe to Governor Training, otherwise the cost is £150 per governor. Please be aware that Governor training is moving over to GovernorHub so please do familiarise yourself with the new system.
