New Governor Welcome Package

New Governor Welcome Package

We are committed to ensuring newly appointed governors are up to speed and effective in their roles as quickly as possible. We therefore provide welcome support to all new governors, with two cohorts during academic year 2021/22 - one starting in autumn term 2021, and the other starting in spring term 2022.

This package includes

Access to two key training sessions during your first term:

  • Working in Partnership to Support School Improvement
  • Being Strategic – What Good Governance Looks Like

Access to two additional sessions, just for new governors:

  • A New Governor Drop In session during your first term – a time to get advice on your role, ask any burning questions and meet other new governors from across the county
  • An End of First Year Review session in July 2022 - another drop in session to review the first year in your new role, discuss issues and ideas with fellow new governors and get advice from the team.

A copy of the NGA Welcome to Governance Handbook, an essential guide to everything new governors, trustees and academy committee members need to know about their roles, and covers both local authority maintained schools and academies.

The package costs £95 per new governor.
