This essential introduction to the work of school governors will be delivered online by Andrew Dodge using Zoom. The course comprises two sessions and governors should attend both sessions.
Andrew will outline governors’ roles and responsibilities including accountability. He will lead you through the structure of the governing board, how it operates and how you can get the most out of meetings. It is an excellent opportunity to meet other new governors and to find out more about the support which is available to governors. The course content has been reviewed to ensure it reflects the latest governance arrangements.

Safe recruitment is central to the safeguarding of children and young people. As the DfE statutory guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education” states "It is vital that schools and colleges create a culture of safe recruitment and, as part of that, adopt recruitment procedures that help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children."
One of the most effective ways to ensure that clear practices and systems are in place, is to complete Safer Recruitment training.
This online training session will be delivered by our accredited trainer Steve Eccleston
