Course Objectives

This course is aimed at Governors who are established within their role and would like a refresher course.

The purpose of this course is to:

• encourage, empower and spread good practice
• re-visit the core purpose and processes of governance
• review terminology & systems of governance & compliance with the law
• to help governors to know their school better
• to share experience and strengthen boards.

The Governor Services Training Team are looking to enthuse governors in carrying out their role. This course will give them an opportunity to talk, to share experiences and learn from others. There have been significant legislative changes and in addition terminology has changed or evolved and this course seeks to bring governors up to date. Effective governance relies on governors knowing their school well. The course looks at best practice and it is hoped that delegates will learn from what they hear. Good governance is usually a product of confident members of the Board and of good leadership. The training looks to renew and refresh a governor's confidence.

This course is for Governors only. Schools buying into the SLA for training can attend this course for free. Non Governors will be charged the full course fee.

Cancellation fees will apply for non-attendance or if a course place is cancelled by the delegate within 21 working days of the course date.

If you have applied online and ticked to have acceptance sent via email the email will be sent 2-3 weeks before as well as a letter to the your Schools Portal.
