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’.
