Derby Diocesan Board of Education

Governor Two-Part Training Programme

These sessions will be led by the Deputy Director for Education and Fiona Moss from RE Today along with a serving SIAMS inspector

Thursday 24/11/22 & Tuesday 25/04/23.  Sessions will be held online 18:00 – 20:00

This programme is essential for all new governors and for those who have not accessed DBE training for a while and would benefit from refreshing their knowledge of what it means to be a governor of a church school. This course will give you the firm foundations you need to carry out your role effectively as well as networking and discussion time with other governors in the diocese.

Through the programme you will explore:

  • What a church school is (and is not)
  • The importance of ethos and vision
  • RE in a church school
  • Collective Worship

This programme is relevant for ANY governor of a church school, and not just foundation governors.

Fee: Schools in Partnership Agreement £125 / Non-Partnership Agreement Schools £250 (NB fee is per school and not per attendee, and is for both sessions)

Bespoke Training

Members of the DBE team are also available to provide bespoke training for governing bodies on the development and/or review of your Christian vision.  This is usually delivered online for two hours, contact
