The School Governor's training programme takes place yearly.

To make the training more accessible, some sessions will take place online, and others will take place face to face.

Attending is not compulsory, but will help you to:

  • improve effectiveness in your role 
  • keep you up to date on developments that may affect your school and your role as governor

If you want to come along to any of the training sessions, or want training in a particular issue delivered in your school, please contact the Governor Support Service through your Chair of Governors. There may be an extra cost to the school.

If you have any comments or suggestions on any area of governor training, please contact Christine Henderson on 0191 424 7847 or
