08 Jun Governor training set to become mandatory in Wales
The Education (Wales) Measure 2011 allows Welsh Ministers to introduce regulations to make governor training mandatory on specific issues.
Initially the mandatory topics will be introductory training for new Governors, training for Chairs of Governing bodies and training for Governors on the use and understanding of school data. The measure also allows Welsh Ministers to set out the content of that training.
In addition, the measure requires local authorities to provide a clerking service for governing bodies if requested. It also gives Welsh Ministers the power to introduce regulations to make clerk training mandatory and to set out the content of that training.
Subject to the outcome of the consultation it is proposed that the new regulations will come into force in October 2012.
Here at Modern Governor we feel it is important for Governors to have knowledge of a wide range of subjects. That’s why we’re working with Wrexham and Denbighshire local authorities to tailor our e-learning for Welsh Governors and that it reflects Welsh legislation where it differs from that in England.
We already have 5 e-learning modules available in our catalogue for Welsh Governors, and we will be adding to this over the coming months. Although the content will be English initially we will also be making some content available in Welsh soon.
