Whether you’re new to governance or have experience, the purpose remains the same – to ensure our schools give children the best education possible.
This training can be used as an induction for new starters or alternatively as a refresher course to ensure everyone in governance has the knowledge and skills to carry out their role effectively.
The purpose of the session
Taking on the role of governing a school is a big responsibility; those who do so want to make a real contribution to ensuring better outcomes for pupils. We know that governing schools is complex and to be effective a good knowledge of the education sector is required - specifically in the areas of school performance and school funding. This programme is designed to give you a good grounding of the role and responsibilities, and the knowledge that is needed to become a catalyst for strong governance.
