School Governor Service Training Programme Autumn 2016 - Spring 2017

The new edition of the School Governor Service Training Programme includes sessions organised by theme and covers both the Autumn 2016 and Spring 2017 terms.

The purpose of this programme is to support governors in the effective strategic management of all schools and academies, to enable the best possible educational outcomes for children across the district and improve further education and job prospects for them.

Governors need to be able to:-

  • fulfil their strategic planning role in the school
  • understand and effectively undertake their accountability role
  • act as a critical friend to the management of the school
  • develop appropriate skills and knowledge to effectively monitor school improvement
  • work with school managers, staff, parents, the local community and, where appropriate, the Diocesan authorities, Academy Trust Boards and other partnerships.

The programme offers a wide range of opportunities intended to broaden governors’ knowledge, develop their skills and update them on specific responsibilities. Governor feedback and developments in education continue to inform the sessions provided.  Governors in Bradford contribute to the programme and support our promise to deliver a high quality service provided by experienced professionals to meet the needs of individual governors and governing boards.  For further information and to access the training programme please go to https://bso.bradford.gov.uk/content/governors/training
