All governors are encouraged to attend training to improve their effectiveness in the role and to keep abreast of new developments.

Governor Services have an extensive annual training package and offer both virtual and classroom-based training sessions and workshops.

These sessions are run by trainers who have extensive knowledge of governance and include the National Governance Association, members of the safeguarding in education team and members of The Tower Hamlets Education Partnership.

These courses are free to individual governors, the governing bodies pay any costs incurred for training out of the appropriate school budget.

In addition to the individual training courses Tower Hamlets governor services can arrange specific training just for your governing body, usually held at your school if your school has a Service Level Agreement with Governor Services.

These courses can be tailored to meet specific training and development needs. Some governing bodies choose to nominate a "link governor" who has overall responsibility for ensuring that individual governors training needs are identified and addressed.

We are also able to offer training and access to training modules from the National Governance Association at a discounted rate.
