As a new governor, you might be wondering how to start getting involved with the work of your governing board.
Induction is essential for all new governors to help understand their roles and responsibilities and effective boards should encourage everyone involved in governance, especially those new to the role, to make the most of the resources, guidance and training available to develop their knowledge and skills. Good induction can provide strategies and the basic knowledge to enable new governors to take an active role and make a positive difference right from the start.
In a world where the education system and the expectation on governance is changing, existing governors wishing to update their governance may also find attendance beneficial.
