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 2022/23 - one starting in autumn term 2022, and the other starting in spring term 2023.

This package includes

Access to two key training sessions:

  • Developing Working Relationships with the Senior Leadership Team
  • Being Strategic – What Good Governance Looks Like

Access to two additional sessions, just for new governors:

  • A New Governor Drop In session – 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 2023 - 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.
