GovernWell in-house training

Our core training modules can be delivered in-house for your council by our high-quality trainers, with content tailored to organisational training requirements.

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. The training can be held virtually or locally to your trust, giving your governors the opportunity to meet and network outside formal council meetings. Course material can be designed to be highly relevant for your training and development requirements, and ensures the whole council is trained to the same standard to meet the requirements of the Health and Care Act.

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.
