This full-day course is for new governors for schools, academies and MAT's. This course is very important for all new governors so that they can be as effective as possible in helping the governing board in its role to secure school improvement. Delegates benefit from the opportunity to network with new governors from other schools and academies.
We recommend that all new governors attend the ‘Induction for governors’ course within the first three months of being appointed. In particular new governors derive maximum benefit if they book onto a course which takes place after they have attended at least one governing board meeting.
The three key roles of the governing board that will be covered during the course are:
1. vision and strategic
2. holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
3. financial management and best value
Delegates will also receive an insight into how to get to know their school and taking part in effective meetings. The course will use a variety of teaching strategies including group discussion, case studies and tutor input.
Governors that buy into a HfL MAT packagewill be charged £100 for their attendance.
