An induction for new governors, single academy trustees and MAT local governing body members (Twilight session)
This course will enable new governors, single academy trustees and MAT local governing body members to understand and fulfil their key roles – to support and challenge their schools and to contribute to improving pupil outcomes. The areas covered include:
- the main purpose, powers and duties of governing boards and the legal framework within which they operate
- working strategically and in partnership with colleague governors and senior leaders
- the features of effective governance and Ofsted expectations
It is helpful but not essential for governors to have attended at least one governing board meeting before attending.
