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

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 the 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.
