Training for governors and trustees

We specialise in delivering courses, support, tailored comprehensive consultancy packages and networks for school staff and governors. We have a number of packages of in-school training that we can deliver within your educations establishment and we can also create bespoke training packages. Courses are run across Norfolk and can also be delivered in other locations.

Having the ability to access high quality and professional training can be vital in developing governance in your school or trust.

Our experienced team can assist in meeting the needs of your governors so they can fulfil their responsibilities.

If your needs are very specific then we can develop bespoke material that can be delivered on site at a time and location suitable for governors.

Alternatively, we provide a comprehensive range of training sessions and materials to support governors' ongoing development which are regularly delivered in our training centres.

Access to online Bitesize Learning courses is available when purchasing an Option 1 subscription.
