Course Code:



An accreditation programme for governors


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 tools 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’ (GDC).


Level 1 examines the role of the 21stcentury 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 delivered over 6-8 weeks (autumn term) and a robust self-assessment tool to be completed.

• Module 1 ‘Good Governance – Knowing my school’
• Module 2 ‘School Data – What it all Means’
• Module 3 ‘Managing the Budget – Value for Money’
