Academy Councillors Training

We offer a variety of sessions for our Board of Directors and Councillors. 

Recent sessions have included:

  • data training
  • safeguarding, child protection and PREVENT
  • effective use and reporting of pupil premium
  • exclusion processes
  • what to look for in visits to schools
  • KS3 curriculum and assessment developments

Katharine Alcock, Academy Councillor for Hanham Woods Academy said of the training she had received "I have attended several training sessions including presentations on data, pupil premium and what to look for in academy visits.  I have found them incredibly useful in supporting and developing my role as an Academy Councillor.  The sessions guide you through the minefield of different and often complex data, enrich your understanding of your academy’s performance, provide you with useful guidance, enable you to better identify areas for improvement and equip you with a greater depth of knowledge to be able to ask more challenging questions.   They are also valuable in keeping up to date with ever changing priorities and developments within education.  The sessions are also an opportunity to meet councillors from other academies and share experiences and best practice"
