GovernWell in-house training

As well as our open courses, our modules can be delivered as in-house training which can be tailored to trust needs and delivered exclusively for your council.

In-house training ensures consistent learning of good practice across the whole council and provides a more open environment to discuss your most pressing issues.

Since 2013 we have trained over 140 organisations, and in the past year 99% of delegates would recommend our in-house training to other governors.
