Governor Training Courses
We offer a number of courses ideally suited for governors. These courses are to give governors an understanding of what is expected of them and also give them the tools to be more effective in their schools. Please use the ‘book now’ tab to access our online sign-up system.
We are currently delivering all training by Zoom. Our Zoom protocols are here: LDBS Zoom Governor Training Protocols.
The list of courses below is updated regularly, so do remember to check back. You will be notified by email if a course is cancelled due to lack of participant uptake.
If you have a question about any of these courses, please email us.
