How to be an Effective Governor - Modules 1, 2 & 3 (full day course)
This course is designed to give all governors, especially new governors, the essential information they need to be effective in helping their school to provide the best possible education for its pupils. The course is based on the National Training Programme For School Governors developed by the DfE, and is built around the three key roles that governors must fulfil: setting the strategic direction, holding the headteacher to account and ensuring value for money. Whilst an essential course for new governors, it is also extremely useful for more experienced governors who wish to refresh their knowledge and understanding of governance in an ever changing educational landscape.
