Induction for new governors

All new governors will be provided with a resource pack by the Governor Support Service.  New governors are advised to familiarise themselves with the Mentoring and Induction Policy for New Governors and to work through the New Governor Checklist.

As well as training and information provided by the Governor Support Service and the wider Local Authority, guidance is also offered by the Department for Education, and National Governance Organisations.
