Course description

The East Sussex Governors Forum (ESGF) would like to invite to take part in the next round of Governor Local Area Forums. The focus of these sessions will be Communication with Stakeholders and will be led by Jane Branson and Denise Kong, along with support from other members of the ESGF.

This session will incorporate key messages and advice on how, when and why to communicate with all your stakeholders, including parents, staff, pupils and the wider community. The session will:
•remind governors of the principles around effective stakeholder communication
•allow governor networking and sharing of good practice around communication
•help governors to consider any improvements that might be needed


Training objectives

Local Area Forums provide:

  • a significant opportunity for consultation, briefing and discussion over current local and national issues relating to schools and in particular to
    the work of governing boards


Learning outcomes

Regular networking amongst the wider governor community will build local relationships amongst governors to:

  • increase sharing of best practice and practical solutions to general governance issues

  • increase governor confidence to seek and accept support on local governance issues

  • increase trust amongst governors to give and receive peer to peer challenge

  • increase governor awareness of the local East Sussex Governors’ Forum
