Governance Training

We have a comprehensive series of governor training courses and accredited programmes to equip both governors and governance professionals to carry out their roles effectively and enable them to strategically lead in their schools and academies.

We produce an annual governor training programme, of both face to face and virtual learning opportunities, catering for new governors as well as the more experienced who want to further their knowledge in a specialised area. We review our courses regularly to reflect national initiatives, local need, and changes in legislation. Courses are open to all board members as continued learning is vital in empowering governors to confidently undertake and fulfil the three core functions of governance.

You can access our governor training programme as annual package, or “pay as you go”.

We hold an annual conference for chairs, governors/trustees and governance professionals. This is an opportunity to bring everyone together from across the county and beyond. Attendance is included as part of the governor training package or “pay as you go”.

Governor Training Package

The Governor Training Package is an agreement purchased directly by the governing board through The Education People and includes access to a whole range of materials, publications, E-learning and telephone support. 

Our Governor Training Package will enable you, your clerk and your governors to attend as many of our online and face to face training courses as you like for a fixed cost - no additional charges and no limits on the number of attendees from your board!
