15 Feb Why Cheshire East Unitary Council chose e-learning for Governors
At the recent Modern Governor meeting, Ruth Agnew from Cheshire East Council discussed the benefits of e-learning and using Modern Governor.
When Cheshire restructured and split into Cheshire East, Cheshire West & Chester, governor training remained the same, as Ruth explains below:
“Modern Governor has remained a constant for Cheshire East throughout the authority restructure. Despite the difficulties a restructure poses, every Governor at Cheshire was always able to access training when they needed to.”
For Ruth, there is no viable alternative to Modern Governor – thanks Ruth – we agree!
Ruth discussed benefits of using the Modern Governor as a training tool:
• the courses are accessible at any time
• learners an revisit the courses, for a refresher on topics
• the courses are designed by subject experts and instructional designers
• Modern Governor is complimentary to a blended learning approach
Cheshire East has found the courses interactive and engaging. Another plus is the courses are certificated, regularly updated and designed specifically for school governors.
