Governing Body Training Information

All governors attend year round training provided by Cardiff council, and once the school physically re-opens, we will resume our own in-house bespoke workshops, CGA presentations, Open University free resources and Welsh Government on-line training.

Mandatory Training for Governors

The Education (Wales) Measure 2011 includes provisions to allow Welsh Ministers to make regulations to make governor training mandatory on specific issues. The Government of Maintained Schools (Training Requirements for Governors) (Wales) Regulations 2013 were made for this purpose and came into force in September 2013. 6.


Induction training for newly appointed or elected governors - within 12 months of appointment/election


Training for Chairs – all newly elected chairs are required to attend chair training within six months of being elected


Use and understanding of school data – within 12 months of appointment

Training for all newly appointed Clerks – within 12 months of appointment 
Only Headteachers are exempt from the mandatory sessions.  Governors who were appointed before 2011 and have not had a significant break in service are also exempt from attending induction training.  


We take our roles and responsibilities as a Governing Body very seriously. 


Twice a year, we self evaluate using a questionnaire which every member must complete.


Results of the Summer Term 2019 Skills Audit:


Our governors bring together a strong skills set that satisfies every area of the qualities needed to provide for a diverse, knowledgeable body.

We have identified and signed up to formal training for Additional / Special Educational Needs and disability in June 2019.




Glyncoed Governing Body has a Code of Conduct Policy to ensure all governors respect the confidentiality, propriety and ethics required of the role.  A copy of the Code is below.
