SKILLS, TRAINING AND NETWORKING

Skills and Training

Governance is key to high performing organisations, however it is rarely supported.  Our governance support makes the best use of governor time, and provides them with the insight that they need to make an impact.  We use our award-winning products, training and bespoke support to help them to be more effective in their role. Most of our training and development for Governors is bespoke and delivered to Boards directly, however we do offer a small number of training courses for wider participation.

 

Click on the drop down menus below to find out more about our current group training programmes for school governors.  

Attendees at our events will also be invited to join a new governor network, where participants will continue to learn and share.
