Course description

As a new governor, you might be wondering how to start getting involved with the work of your governing board.


Induction is essential for all new governors to help understand their roles and responsibilities and effective boards should encourage everyone involved in governance, especially those new to the role, to make the most of the resources, guidance and training available to develop their knowledge and skills. Good induction can provide strategies and the basic knowledge to enable new governors to take an active role and make a
positive difference right from the start.


In a world where the education system and the expectation on governance is changing, existing governors wishing to update their governance may also find attendance beneficial.


 

Training objectives

The induction course is designed to mix instruction, activities and discussion. There is plenty of opportunity to talk with other governors and to share good practice and experiences.


Induction is available as a one day course or spread over two evenings in consecutive weeks. To get the full benefit of the programme governors should attend both sessions.


 

Learning outcomes
By the end of this session governors will:

• know the mechanisms for getting to know the school
• be aware of the key documents that are essential for getting to know the school
• understand the boundaries of the governor role
• be aware of the expectations of being a governor
