The training modules that you can already view and book on this site cover the period from September to December 2020 and further modules and dates for 2021 will be added in due course. They represent value for money and there is something to suit all governors whether you are new to the role or looking for further development.

All training modules are delivered online giving easy access for governors and have been designed to be both interactive and engaging. All modules have a start time of 6:30pm.
