Governance Training Programme 2019-20

Governance Training Programme 2019-20

Please find all governance training courses for the 2019-20 academic year listed below. Governors and trustees may seek further information and book on each course individually by selecting the ‘Further Information’ link alongside the corresponding date and time. This year we are pleased to introduce three new courses which reflect the changes in governance and education as a whole. Many other courses have been updated or re-written.

Courses are reviewed regularly to ensure that they reflect both national initiatives and changes in legislation and are scheduled at various times throughout the day and early evening to accommodate governors and trustees with work or family commitments.

Information on Partnership Forums, Chairs’ Briefings and the annual Governance Conference can be found under the ‘News, Events and Updates’ section of the site.

Information can be found about our e-learning opportunities via the ‘Governance E-Learning’ Page

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