Governor training and subscription

Bedford Borough Council provides a comprehensive programme of governor training courses.

During the summer term 2019/20 we will be replacing face-to-face training sessions with remote training opportunities through mediums such as Skype. We will adapt and continue our provision for governors to make it highly relevant at this challenging time.

Changes to the published programme are communicated to governors and clerks through monthly Governor Training Newsletters. The newsletters inform governors about cancelled courses as well as additional training opportunities.

To find out more about the subscription package we offer contact Julia Newman, Governor Training and Development Co-ordinator,

The majority of governor training sessions will be held at Borough Hall and Raleigh Training Suite.
