BESST Governor Training

Spring Term 2022/23

Governor training is a vital element in every governing board’s effectiveness.  Recognising that Governors need flexibility, we offer a comprehensive ‘pay as you go’ training programme for all governors throughout the academic year.  Delivered by expert Buckinghamshire Council teams and selected partners, the training is tailored to governors within the county.

All training in academic year 2021/22 will be delivered in the evening and will be virtually hosted on MS Teams, allowing for interactive live courses with our experts.  The one-hour sessions will be focused on the needs of governors and will allow plenty of time for ‘what if?’ scenarios discussions to ensure the training meets your needs and answers pressing questions. Governor training sessions for academic year 2021/22 will be a discounted rate of only £25 per delegate.
