NTG1010 New to Governance 1/2

New to Governance

The course is a vital part of the induction of new school governors, the course covers the essential elements of the role of the governing board and of the governors that make up the board. The course acknowledges the need for all governors to be properly inducted and developed to ensure they possess the knowledge and skills required to perform their functions confidently and effectively.

The course is designed for not only new governors but governors who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills are very welcome. The sessions are interactive and activities use real examples to illustrate challenges that governors face.

The sessions will explore the key roles of the governing board as outlined in the current Governance Handbook; particular emphasis is placed on the three core functions of school governance;

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The course will examine how these core functions relate to the everyday functioning of the school and its board of governors and the responsibilities of the board to the school.

Please note this course is in two parts. (2x2 hour sessions)
