Governors do not need specific skills, but many of the tasks they are required to undertake can benefit from general business knowledge such as understanding management systems, budget planning and HR functions. Cidari will ensure that training for Governors is available and support Local Governing Committees to ensure that Governors are properly inducted into their role.

The Trust has a programme of Governors' Network Meetings and training. The current programme is available to view in the Key Dates and Publications section or to download here.

Further advice and support is available from the National Governors Association (NGA). You can visit their website here (opens in new window) or follow them on Twitter below.
