- Password protected website
Our website offers a one stop shop information and advice service which is available to our subscribers 24/7. It holds a comprehensive databank of policies, documents and guidance linked to national regulations.
There is a ‘what’s new?’ area and a specialist area for clerks and Development and Training Governors.
There are a growing number of e-learning programmes available to our subscribers at no additional cost. These allow governors to access training at a time and location of their choosing, and can help governors to handle crisis situations effectively. Some examples:
- understanding teachers pay
- reconstitution guidance
- dealing with pay appeals
- dealing with child protection matters
- complaints handling
- governors' disciplinary committee
- governor hearings on staffing matters
- parents as governors: getting it right
- staff as governors: getting it right
