About this event

Target Audience: Newly elected and aspiring Chair of Governors.

Course Provider: Kathryn Gilbert, Principal Schools Governance Officer

Aim & Purpose of the Training:

Since the implementation of mandatory training by the Welsh Government, all Chairs are required to attend this training session within six months of being elected to the role. Governors who have already attended since first being elected as Chair are not required to attend again.

The session focuses on leadership and maintaining effective relationships with key partners such as the headteacher, clerk to governing body and the local authority. It will also equip Chairs of governors with the necessary skills to run an efficient and effective governing body and to work with, and provide challenge to, headteachers to raise standards.

Aspiring Chairs of governors or vice-Chairs of governors are able to complete the mandatory Chair training if they wish. If you become a Chair within two years of attending the training you will not be required to attend again.
