Governor Training: Introduction to Governance

For new Governors and Trustees to understand what is required of you and what your role is.

Outline

This School Governor Service course over two sessions is targeted at new and recently appointed or elected governors and trustees. It is a 'safe' environment to ask questions, learn about the role of governance in achieving successful outcomes for children. It also offers governors and trustees the opportunity for self assessment and to learn from and share experiences.

Description

This course aims to give you, as a newly appointed governor/trustee (including headteachers, staff governors and associate members), a level of knowledge of governance that you need to effectively support your school in raising standards. It provides:
  • An overview of school governance, your role as a governor, the responsibilities and expectations placed on you, and the way in which you should work with the headteacher and school leadership team

  • Knowledge and understanding of governors’ responsibilities

  • A briefing on national and local educational issues and their impact on governing boards

  • Processes to assist you in using your new skills and knowledge for the benefit of pupils.

  • An opportunity to meet and exchange views with other recently appointed governors, with discussion and group work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
