We are pleased to welcome you to the training and development programme for governors and clerks for the 2018/19 financial year. The training programme and all our guidance documents have been reviewed to ensure that all aspects of the Government's Competency Framework are met.
It is highly recommended that all new governors undertake induction training to familiarise them with their roles and responsibilities. Governing boards should also have at least two governors who have attended the performance management and safer recruitment training.
Governor support service senior officers are highly experienced governance professionals who have worked for many years with a wide range of governance boards. All officers leading training are qualified trainers and hold a minimum of a BTEC Level 3 in Education and Training. Feedback from governors is exceptional. Governors are always appreciative of the personal experience and tips that the trainers share. Training sessions not facilitated by our core team are delivered by colleagues from other departments who are experienced professionals and experts in their subject area.
