Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to support experienced Chairs of Governing Bodies (or Committees) with regard to managing changes and developments in education and schools, in so much as they affect Governing Bodies and their work.  There is an expectation for Chairs to keep up to date with current requirements, but the opportunity and time to do this are not always available for Chairs or experienced Governors.  This course is intended to fill this gap.
