New governors – introductory course
This course will enable new governors to understand and fulfil their key roles – to support and challenge their schools and to contribute to improving pupil outcomes. The areas covered include:
- the main purpose, powers and duties of governing boards and the legal framework within which they operate
- working strategically and in partnership with colleague governors and senior leaders
- the features of effective governance and Ofsted expectations
It is helpful but not essential for governors to have attended at least one board meeting before attending.
