online governor training

Growth and development of governors, especially those new to role is imperative, and the new inspection framework poses challenges for many governing bodies. In order to provide the key knowledge and skills needed for effective governance, Services for Education offers a range of professional development to enable this. Our webinars offer flexibility in terms of course access, and accompanying workbooks provide a valuable reference point long after the training itself.

Services for Educations provides extensive leadership and management support, and ‘Face to Face’ training can be tailor-made to suit schools’ individual needs; please make contact to discuss your specific requirements.

Our most popular training relates to preparing for inspection, including the Quality of Education, understanding the pupil premium grant, understanding and interrogating data and safeguarding for governors.

At Services For Education we also provide bespoke leadership and management sessions for governors. If you would like to find out more please email us at
