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.
