Governor Training Courses

***AUTUMN TRAINING UPDATE***
We are delighted to offer all our scheduled training by Zoom in the autumn term.
We will not be hosting training in person at Causton Street until the social distancing restrictions lift.
Please sign up in the usual way via our enquiries email address by clicking on the “more info” link(s) below, and we will send you the Zoom link and course information nearer the time.

 

Please view the LDBS Zoom Governor Training Protocols by clicking on this link.

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.

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 your query.
