Governance Training Programme 2019-20 (Revised Summer Term)

Governance Training Programme 2019-20 (Revised Summer Term)

The Bolton Governance Services Team recognises that schools and academies are not operating in the usual way during the current national emergency.

During social distancing, isolation and shielding, we felt it important to provide some normality in services and are therefore offering a suite of virtual training and development for governors and trustees to access. This will replace some of our planned face-to-face sessions this term. The pre-recorded sessions will give governors and trustees the freedom and flexibility to view anytime after the publication date.  As you will appreciate it will not be possible to convert all sessions at this time and we will postpone some of the courses until later in the school year.

The summer term Chairs’ Briefing will be provided as a virtual session and may be booked via the following LINK. The summer term Partnership Forum will be cancelled and the planned items postponed to the autumn term session.

The NGA Learning Link, brokered through our Training and Development Service Level Agreement, remains available for access. Further information on e-learning can be found on this website by following this LINK

If you would like to discuss any aspects of the revised summer term Governance Training & Development Programme, please contact Marie Foley on 01204 332116 or via email at marie.foley@bolton.gov.uk.
