Concurrent with your induction process or as soon as possible after it you should register for the e-Learning Course for New Governors. This will give you an overview of the independent education sector as a whole, explain the vital distinction between governance and management, and provide other useful background on operating an independent school and key relationships.
Who Should Attend
The course is designed for new Governors. However, we recognise that Clerks and existing Governors would also like to participate and they are welcome to do so.
Individual registration is required. This will allow the course administrator to monitor your progress, and to notify the school when you have completed the course, so that its Governing Body Training record can be updated.
The e-Learning Course for New Governors is free to AGBIS Members. If your school/college is not a Member of AGBIS, the e-Learning course is chargeable.
"I found the course useful to do as it gave me insight into the roles and responsibilities of governors."
"It should really be compulsory/recommended reading for a new or potential governor so one knows what one is undertaking both in terms of responsibility and commitment."
