​Moving forward into the autumn term and beyond it is our training that has required the greatest rethink. We have built a strong reputation for providing high quality governor and clerks training which is based on the expertise of our facilitators. As face to face training is not currently possible, we will be delivering as many courses as we can remotely using Microsoft Teams.

Due to the evolving situation we will be releasing our programme of training dates for the 2020-21 academic year on a termly basis.  The programme for term 1 can be found under the 'Public Content' Tab then the 'Training Programme' Tab.

Our training programme, content and style will evolve but we remain committed to providing you with relevant, practical and compliant support that enables you to deliver effective governance and improve outcomes for all of the children and young people in South Gloucestershire.
