Induction and Safeguarding Training

All new governors are strongly recommended to undertake induction training so that they understand their key roles and can make a valuable contribution.   They should also be provided with school/governing board specific induction too.

In addition to induction training, the Department for Education, through its statutory ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance September 2022 now requires governors to undertake safeguarding training as part of their induction.  Safeguarding training for governors should provide governors and trustees with the knowledge to provide strategic challenge in relation to safeguarding – this would include safeguarding data, policies, and procedures and will also need to be regularly updated.

Induction and safeguarding Governor training can be accessed through a variety of providers:

Leicester City Council

  • Learning Link E-Learning Modules  (for subscribing schools)
  • Leicester and Leicestershire Teaching School Hub (LeLTSH)

Visit our training and development section for further  details and how to book.

Please consider the environment.
