Training for Governors

Training

We have bought into the training package provided by Together for Children, providing a range of opportunities for Governors to gain further insights into, for example, the Curriculum, Safeguarding, Data, Assessment, Recruitment and Finance. 

We have recently joined the National Association of Governors, with a 'Gold' package - this will provide our GB with a means of keeping up to date with current educational initiatives (via a range of articles on the NGA website), information on the regulations that apply to school governing boards, an advice and support service, plus a termly Newsletter. All of our Governors have their own log-in.

In addition, as an add-on to our NGA membership, we are part of Learning Links - this provides online professional development opportunities for Governors, through a range of 'e-learning modules'. Again, each of our Governors has a log-in.

Our subscription to The School Bus gives Governors access to a termly Newsletter, and to a range of articles and resources focused on a wide range of educational matters.

New Governors are provided with an induction, covering key aspects of their role. 

We are also looking at organising a bespoke training session, led by an education adviser, geared to the needs of our Governing Board. We have done this in the past, and found it valuable.
