Governor Training

The governing body discusses the training needs of its members at regular intervals and decides on a training programme for each school year. It identifies areas for development of the whole governing body and arranges for governing body training sessions to be provided in school.

The governing body also subscribes to the training programme presented by Essex County Council and encourages all governors to enrol on courses relevant to governing body activity. All governors will receive a copy of the annual training programme produced by Essex County Council.

The governing body has appointed a development governor to co-ordinate training needs and to keep a record of courses attended by individual governors.

Governors attending training courses are given an opportunity to report on the course at full governing body meetings.
