Level 1 – Foundation of Good Governance
Typically, it is expected that new governors will take 12 months to complete the 6 modules and 2 self-assessment booklets needed to be an accredited governor at Level 2. It is anticipated that some established governors may wish to undertake this programme in which case it will also serve as refresher training or ‘continuous governor development’ (CGD).
Level 1 examines the role and expectations of the modern day governor through the 20 key competencies set out in GAP based on the DfE’s 3 core functions of governing bodies. There are three 2 hour linked training modules and a robust self-assessment booklet to be completed.
• Module 1 Good governance
• Module 2 Understanding School Data
• Module 3 Safeguarding and Inclusion

A certificate of induction will be awarded and enable governors to progress to level 2 ‘Accreditation’.
GAP Level 2 – Accredited governance
Building on level 1, this involves three further training modules, each lasting 2 hours. Governors will evidence how they contribute to effective governance and the impact of their work through their own school experiences.
• Module 4 Driving school improvement
• Module 5 Managing relationships
• Module 6 Preparing for Ofsted

There is an expectation that no less that one governor per board attend this briefing. The intention of this briefing is to share, in an open forum, information on updates, changes and requirements that are being made that directly impact on the role of school governors. Governor Services work to ensure that these briefings are informative and considered a productive use of governor time.

Prevent- Safeguarding Against Radicalisation:
This session is an interactive, 90-minute training, covering the Prevent duty as a safeguarding mechanism within education settings. The training looks at how schools meet the statutory Prevent duty, covering vulnerabilities, indicators of concern and formal referral processes. In a school/ college setting we feel this applicable to all staff.
