Christmas opening hours

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 Governor Organisations.

Training courses

Whilst not compulsory, all governors, however experienced, need training to improve their effectiveness in the role and to keep abreast of developments that may affect their school and their role as governor.

To book a place follow the instruction or email  or if you need support you can call the Governor Support Service on 0161 770 3640.

Courses are held at various venues across Oldham.
