Governor Accreditation Programme - Level Two - Module Five
Level Two - Accredited Governance
This level involves three 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.
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
A certificate of Accreditation will be awarded to governors who have successfully demonstrated that they have the knowledge and experience needed to complete the Level 2 self-assessment booklet after module 6.
Bookings will be taken through the WF Online system and will continue to be taken by the normal channels.
Bookings can be made by phone or email or at your Governing Body meeting.
