Training and Development for Governors

Training and Development for Governors

The Team

The governance training and development will be led by Rhian Swain, Senior Primary Advisor with specific responsibility for Governance, working with other LA Officers to ensure governors and clerks have access to training, information, support and advice required to carry out their duties and responsibilities. This will include liaising with colleagues within Camden Learning in providing a wide range of training opportunities, including bespoke school-based training for individual governing bodies. The goal is to empower Governing Bodies in their strategic leadership, meeting statutory responsibilities and in holding their school leaders to account.

Context

Governors in Camden are strong and committed. They are volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and knowledge coming together to inspire and challenge each other and their school leaders to provide safe, high quality education for all children and young people.
Over the past year a key focus has been the reconstitution of governing bodies, including the auditing of the key skills and knowledge required for highly effective school governance.
Networking between governors and chairs is an important part of the school year with the annual conference and regular briefings and forums, attended by LA officers. These events provide a platform for discussions and information sharing, covering the most current local and national issues in education.
The new governors’ web site has been launched, enhancing communication and providing access to the most up to date local and national information, legislation and guidance.
