For 2020/2021 we have reworked our Governor Training Package. We know what a challenging time it has been for the academic year 2019/2020 and have designed something to help support both new and existing Governors.

We have decided to run a full day on training for all Governors – both primary and secondary on Saturday 30th January 2021 at Cottesmore Academy, Kendrew Barracks, Cottesmore, Rutland LE15 7BA

The morning will be led by some key speakers dealing with roles and responsibilities, safeguarding and updated advice for dealing with Ofsted. The afternoon will then provide an opportunity to choose workshops to support your specific role. There will be two workshop sessions running in the afternoon.

We shall be running workshops in:

  • Data
  • Health and Safety
  • Curriculum design
  • Assessment
  • Managing Complaints
  • Improving Maths
  • Safer recruitment

This year our training programme will be a blended learning approach which will include online presentations and some face to face sessions, when safe to do so. As part of this programme our Governors will be offered 2 lots of 6 online learning sessions which will be approximately 1 hour long.
