Governing bodies have significant power to affect the working lives of teachers. This course offers teachers who serve on governing bodies (as staff governors or in another capacity) the opportunity to learn how the law applies to the composition and operation of school governing bodies in England and Wales, and Northern Ireland, and considers how to operate effectively as a member of the governing body.
The course tackles some common misconceptions about staff governors, and will enable teacher governors to resist attempts to restrict or prevent their full participation in the deliberations and decisions of the governing body.
The course is open to any NASUWT member who is a governor of a school in any capacity.
Please note that courses taking place in Northern Ireland are suitable for members working in Northern Ireland ONLY.
