Governor Development Programme at Liscard Primary School

28th September 2019

Liscard Primary School are delighted to be working in partnership with the Alliance of Leading Learning (ALL) to provide the opportunity for fully funded DfE Funded Governance training. 

Two fully funded places are available to every school governing board.  Please go to the DfE website here to find out more. We're sure you’ll agree that every school should take full advantage of this funded training, worth £500 – places do fill up quickly!

The Governor programme is delivered locally by us at Liscard Primary by a specialist facilitator in Governance training. Often schools register their Chair of Governors – but in terms of succession planning it can be another Governor who can then disseminate to the Board.

The Alliance of Leading Learning is one of only 5 licences delivering the Governor programme. The Alliance is in the privileged position of being the only organisation in the UK to simultaneously hold licences from the DfE for the delivery of both NPQs and the Governor Development Programme – ensuring joined up school leadership professional learning.  In the first year they have delivered to over 700 participants in the West Midlands and North West

The Liscard Governance Training offers:

  • Programme delivery through quality face-to-face session - this is an opportunity for local networking of governors
  • An established reputation as providers of licensed DfE leadership programmes – training over 2,000 school leaders and governors in the last 4 years
  • Excellent customer care – where we treat everyone as an individual
  • Evidence our programmes have a real impact in the school environment – governors come away from the programme with a clear view of their Board and a focused Action Plan for identified areas of development.

More information can be found in the flyer below and booking a place is simple through the Alliance website. There is the online booking form:

Once the booking form is completed the funding is applied for by ALL and your place will be confirmed.

We hope governors will take full advantage of this limited offer. Should you have any questions, Gemma Hargreaves is the programme coordinator and she will happily assist you.  You can contact her on 01691 664445 or
