BESST Governor Training

For financial year 2024/25

Governor Training

Governor training is a vital element in every governing board’s effectiveness.  For 2024/25 we encourage all boards to subscribe to the NGA’s Learning Link e-learning platform to ensure that all governors access a quality induction and information about all aspects of governance.

In addition, BESST will offer a select programme of live virtual sessions for all governors throughout the academic year on a pay as you go basis, designed to supplement the national training offered by the NGA and provide a Buckinghamshire expert view on specific key topics where the county view is essential. Buckinghamshire Council’s termly ‘Governor Priority Briefing’ are free of charge, as are ‘Introduction to Safeguarding in Schools’ live online sessions which will be run at least twice during the academic year 2024/25. 

Additionally, a new governor induction checklist and guide are available to all governors on SchoolsWeb.
