CPD. Training. Governor Development. Call it what you will. Governors increasingly need to think about what training they need, what information, knowledge and skills gaps there are on their Boards, and how they are going to fill these gaps but most importantly how they record the impact of that training.
There are several quick and easy ways to do this and this is how where your Clerk can be of real help;
- Have a separate agenda item on training so Governors can report back and discuss,
- Develop a template they can fill in when they’ve done some training which the clerk can summarise in the minutes,
- Agree a termly plan so everyone knows what training is available and who is going. Some LA publish useful lists which are sent with termly info or are downloadable from websites,
- Ask the Clerk if other Boards have found certain training useful.
