About this event

Target Audience: All newly elected or appointed governors who have not previously attended this mandatory course.

Course Provider: Mrs. Kathryn Gilbert, Principal School Governance Officer

Aim & Purpose of the Training:

If you are a newly elected or appointed governor, it is a mandatory requirement of Welsh Government that you attend for induction training within one year of your appointment or election. Failure to attend within this time limit will mean an automatic suspension as a governor.

Induction training for governors is vital to understand the role and the parameters of responsibilities that come with the position. The induction training will help ensure that as a new governor you have the necessary knowledge and understanding to fulfil the role effectively to support the school in raising standards. The session will develop your confidence to enable you to take a full and active part in the role of the governing body. The training will reflect the legislative framework for school governance in Wales and will focus on what should be expected from governors in meeting their legal requirements. It will also explain a governor’s strategic role and how this supports and challenges the work of the school and the senior leadership team; your role in setting policies and targets and how these should be monitored and evaluated and how and to whom governors are accountable.
