We have always placed a great emphasis on the importance of governor training. With this in mind, we have worked closely with Learn Sheffield who will be co-ordinating the full range of governor training and development opportunities with effect from September 2016.
Governors of schools and academies who subscribe to the service will have access to a yearly programme of courses that respond to national and local initiatives as well as having access to unlimited online governor training.
Training and development opportunities with Learn Sheffield
The Governor Support Service offers a wide range of materials which are accessible to governing boards of schools that subscribe to the Governor Support Service. If you would like access to any of these materials please contact us.
These materials include:
NLGs are highly effective Chairs of Governors who use their skills and experience to support other Chair of Governors to improve school and academy performance.
NLGs have contributed to raising standards in their own school or academy by providing appropriate support and challenge to their Headteacher or Principal and by developing their governing board.
All NLGs have had training in coaching and mentoring and have at least three years’ experience as Chair within the last five years.
They aim to supplement existing sources of school-to-school support for governance offered by local authorities, dioceses, trusts and other partners.
In Sheffield there is recognition of the importance of top quality governance of schools and of the need to strengthen partnerships and collaboration between schools to drive improvements.
We actively promote and support the NLG programme as one means of contributing to the improvement of school governance.
We believe that the additional capacity provided by Local Leaders of Governance (LLGs) in their work with Sheffield governing boards will further accelerate school improvement in the city.
Because not all experienced and high performing school governors are either eligible to apply for NLG status/apply unsuccessfully/do not want to apply, we have put in place a ‘Local Leaders of Governance’ (LLG) programme.
The aim of this programme is similar to the NLG programme, that is; to ensure that there is a group of experienced and skilled governors available who are able to be quickly deployed to support local schools.
