Development Governor

Dear Development Governor,

We are delighted to hear that you have been appointed as Development Governor and we wanted to let you know about the support that is available to you from Governor Services Team.

As well as governing board training and development, another important part of the role is the induction of any new governors, you will find a copy of our model induction programme on our Induction Pages, which we hope will be helpful.

Governor Services Team holds a launch of the new Governor Development Programme in the autumn term, as well as meetings for new Development Governors in the spring term. We also issue Termly newsletters. These provide an opportunity to hear about training in more detail; give valuable feedback to us and meet other Development Governors

We look forward to seeing you at one of these meetings in the future. In the meantime, if you have any queries about your new role in particular, or about governance issues generally, please do not hesitate to contact the Team on Governor Helpline 01296 383180.
