Code: GOV742 Governor Training : Induction for New Governors (One-day course)

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.

Code: GOV752 Governor Training : Clerks Area Support and Network Meeting

Professional clerking has a vital role to play in meeting the administrative and procedural requirements of boards and enabling efficient
and effective discussion and decision making.

The education sector can be a fast moving field, and you may find it tricky to stay on top of changes and statutory requirements. When considering the effectiveness of school governance, the role of the professional clerk cannot be underestimated and it is considered essential that clerks keep up to date with changes in the sector and identify good practice to make the most of the hours worked.

It is also recognised that the role can feel isolating when working independently of the school. The Area Network meetings give clerks the opportunity to network and share best practice with their colleagues.
