Bespoke Courses

Many governing boards have benefited from specific training or workshops that are tailored to their individual needs. We are keen to encourage governing boards to access training sessions that enable them to have training delivered at a date, time and location that is suitable for them.

Some examples of bespoke courses include:

  • Roles and Responsibilities of the Governing Board;

  • The Strategic Role of the Governing Board;

  • Understanding Performance Data;

  • Governor Visits;

  • Induction: Becoming a Confident Governor;

  • Managing Complaints.

 

Governing Board Support

Nationally the education sector and specifically governance has seen unprecedented levels of change. Ofsted inspectors have increasingly sought evidence on how governing boards assess their potential and also evaluate their ability to be effective. It is essential that governing boards can identify any weaknesses in their collective skills, knowledge and competence to ensure they can robustly hold their school to account for continued improvement. A comprehensive programme of support has been designed to meet governing boards' specific requirements, enabling them to become independent and demonstrate shared responsibility as part of the leadership team.
