Proposals to introduce regulations for mandatory training for governors and clerks to the governing body and for local authorities to provide a clerking service for governing bodies
The Education (Wales) Measure 2011 allows Welsh Ministers to introduce regulations to make governor training mandatory on specific issues. Initially the mandatory topics will be induction training for new governors, training for chairs and training for governors on the use and understanding of school data. The Measure also allows Welsh Ministers to set out the content of that training. In addition, the Measure requires local authorities to provide a clerking service for governing bodies if requested. It also gives Welsh Ministers the power to introduce regulations to make clerk training mandatory and to set out the content of that training.
This consultation seeks views on how the proposals will work in practice. It also provides stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on the scope and content of the mandatory governor induction, chair, data and clerk training.
Subject to the outcome of the consultation it is proposed that the regulations will come into force in October 2012.
