Dear Governors and Clerks
Oxfordshire County Council Governor Services are now able to share details of the governor training courses for Summer 2020.
Social distancing measures have changed some aspects of the support we offer you and your governing boards. However, our helpline and Governor Services inbox remain unchanged and we welcome your questions and queries. Please do continue to contact us in this way and we will respond as quickly as we can.
It is our training that has required the greatest rethink. Governor Services has built a reputation for providing high quality governor training which is based on the experience and expertise of our facilitators. As this face to face training is no longer possible, we will now be delivering courses remotely using Microsoft Teams Live Event.
While this is a new mechanism for Governor Services, our courses have been updated to reflect the remote nature of this training, and we are pleased to share the Summer 2020 schedule with you.
Courses can be booked in the usual way through www.oxfordshireschoolscpd.org.uk. Joining instructions will be sent out just as before and we will endeavour to provide the same high-quality training that you would expect. In some cases, the duration of the course has been reduced as we focus on the most important elements. Delegates will also be able to pause and restart the training and the software allows for questions which we can respond to as the training is taking place. Delegates will not have to travel; rather the training will be delivered through their own laptop, tablet or computer.
I ask for your patience as we begin this process; I am sure we will face challenges, but I am also sure that we will learn a great deal along the way and that it will change the way we do some things for the better.
Our schedule, content and style will evolve but we remain committed to providing you with relevant, practical and compliant support that enables you to deliver effective governance and improve outcomes for all of the children in
Head of Governor Services
