Governors Guide to Employment Matters in Schools & Academies

Scheduled Course Date


Being a School or Academy Governor carries with it a lot of responsibility and we understand that Governors undertake their roles on a voluntary basis and may not have experience of HR or employment matters.

As a Governor you may be asked to become involved in a number of HR procedures at your school or academy e.g. disciplinary, recruitment, redundancy, grievance and capability to name a few.

This course will provide Governors with an understanding of the situations they may face in relation to employment in a school or academy setting and ensure they are clear on what their roles and responsibilities would be in these types of situation.
