School effectiveness

Local authority training

Ealing provides a wide range of training opportunities to enable governors and clerks to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills.

Some sessions are dedicated particularly to governors and/or clerks however all courses which may be of relevance are open to our governors/clerks.

These courses are free of charge to governors/clerks of schools that have purchased the Ealing’s CPD and training service level agreement (ask your school’s CPD leader if you are unsure) otherwise there is a small charge to your school.

For more details about all Ealing CPD and training programmes please visit Ealing CPD online: www.ealingcpd.org.uk
