Training and events
The new Training Brochure for 2014-15 can now be found on the LA website http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/children-and-education/schools/learning-and-development-governors-and-clerks. The programme has been revised taking into account the evaluations from delegates and trainers, current local/national priorities and requests from governors.
The Governor Induction Programme has been revised from this term in order to make it more accessible to more governors. It now takes the form of 2 sessions of 2.5 hours (rather than 4 x 2 hours). Part 1 is an ‘Introduction to Governance’ and Part 2 is ‘Roles and Responsibilities’. The full details are in the LA's new training brochure.
On 18 June the LA is holding its annual Clerks’ Conference, this year entitled ‘Clerking – A New Era’. We are really pleased that Shena Lewington will be leading on this, who many of you will know, even if you don’t realise it! She is very active on Twitter, known as @clerktogovernors and also has a very useful websitewww.clerktogovernors.co.uk. Shena used to work in Brighton & Hove so is very much looking forward to meeting our clerks.
