The Board of Governors are the key strategic decision makers in schools and therefore have a vital role to play in improving and sustaining school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education.
It is acknowledged that all governors actively contribute relevant skills, experience and attributes to the role and in order to further enhance and empower governors with additional knowledge and information, the annual Education Authority (EA) Training and Support Programme for Members of Board of Governors is specifically designed to help governors fulfil their roles and statutory duties.
Training and Support Programme for Members of Boards of Governors 2017-2018
Courses have been designed to help governors focus on their strategic responsibilities including:
- Performance Review and Staff Development (PRSD);
- Human Resources;
- Child Protection and Safeguarding;
- Health and Safety;
It is recommended that attendance at courses is discussed and agreed collectively by the Board of Governors and that governors should attend courses relevant to their expertise, designated area, or roles and responsibilities.
A full programme of courses for the academic year September 2017 – June 2018 is available from the link below:
