Free governor webinars – Friday 18 March 2022

This week I highlight two free governor webinars from Governors for Schools on securing improvements in attendance and enhancing governors knowledge of supporting students with SEND in relation to careers related learning.

Thursday 24 March 2022 from 8 to 9 a.m. – The effective governance of attendance
In conjunction with Better Governor, this webinar looks at Ofsted’s recently published research on attendance, new guidance introduced by the DfE, and strategies schools have used to bring about improvements in attendance. It will also explore the role that governance can play in securing improvement in attendance, including the questions that governors can ask in board meetings to provide challenge and seek assurance.

Tuesday 29 March 2022 from 1 to 2 p.m. – Careers related learning for students with Special Education Needs and Disabilities
This webinar is for governors and school staff who want to enhance their knowledge of supporting students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities when it comes to careers education. It will showcase examples of effective careers education and highlight key questions that governors should consider when reflecting on the offering of their own school.
