Induction for New Governors

The 4 week ING programme aims to support new governors to play an active and valuable part in their governing body from an early stage. The programme is relevant for governors from all phases and settings and is organised into four core sessions that look at moral purpose, strategic leadership, accountability and the role of governors as a critical friend. Attendance at all four sessions is required. The programme aims to support new governors to better understand:

  • the role of governing bodies and why they exist
  • how to be an effective member of a governing body
  • the key roles and responsibilities of governing bodies in contributing to school improvement
  • the different and complementary roles of the headteacher and the governing body
  • roles of different stakeholders and their relationship with the governing body
