Leicester Teaching School (LETS)

The Local Authority is working with the Leicester Teaching School who continues to offer a wide range of virtual governor courses. Details of the current courses can be found on the 2020/2021 workshop flyer

If you are a primary governor whose school is part of the Closing the Gap Initiative/governance support project, you are entitled to a fully funded place on the following courses:

  • Holding School Leaders to Account
  • SEND for Governors
  • The Inspection Dashboard
  • Effective Governance
  • Disadvantaged Pupils
  • Safeguarding for Governors

Please contact us on governors@leicester.gov.uk if you are unsure whether your school is part of the project. 

All of the workshops are run online and further details and how to book a place can be found on the attached flyer.   The booking process is the same whether your place is fully funded or at a charge of £30 to the school.  Please let your school know if you book a place so that it can include any charge in its budget monitoring procedures.
