Training and Development

Governors, the Principal and senior managers at Winstanley College recognise the important contribution which training and development makes to the College’s effectiveness in providing and delivering high quality education.

The principle objective of providing training and development opportunities for the governing body is to ensure the effectiveness of all governors as individuals and as members of a corporate governing body; to enable them to set the College’s Mission and strategic direction, to meet their responsibilities as laid out in Article 3 of the College’s Instrument and Articles of Government.

The College will provide training and regular development opportunities which underpin the role of being a governor at an outstanding Sixth Form College.  Governors are then able to discharge their responsibilities effectively and with confidence.  The Clerk to the governing body provides an induction programme for all newly appointed governors which is supported by the Director of Finance & Resources.
