Governor Induction and Training


At Millwood we do inductions for new governors, where either myself the vice chair or another established governor will go through a well thought out plan (devised by governors) to explain fully the importance of the role of being a school governor. It is also a good ‘ice breaker’ to make our new governors feel ‘welcome’.

Governors also have the opportunity to attend governor training on a whole host of subjects linked in to governing bodies. The training is run by Bury Local Authority.  Also, if the head teacher and governors feel we need more detailed training in a specific area we can get ‘key’ people in for this purpose.
