Governor Training Courses
We offer a number of courses ideally suited for governors. These courses are to give governors an understanding of what is expected of them and also give them the tools to be more effective in their schools. Please use the ‘book now’ tab to access our online sign-up system.
We are currently delivering most of our training via Zoom. Our Zoom protocols are here: LDBS Zoom Governor Training Protocols.
