Governor Services Team

Who are we? How can we help you Govern your school?

Support - Team

Governor Services sits within the Access, Planning, Governance and Business Development Team, operating as part of Education Services within the Children and Young People Directorate.

Overview of Service

Governor Services provide a core service funded by the Local Authority allowing governors to access expertise on the full range of governance issues. The team ensures that governing bodies are kept up to date with their legal responsibilities and offers advice on educational and procedural issues to support the governing body's contribution to school improvement.

In addition, a comprehensive training and development programme is offered as a buyback subscription package (see the section on Governor development, training and e-learning).

The core Governor Service covers:

Instruments of Government

Recruitment and Retention

Advice and Support

Schools causing Concern

Support for schools causing concern through training and development sessions for governors, audit of governing body paperwork, development of governing body processes and procedures, and recruitment of governors

Temporary Governing Bodies
