SCHOOL governors across Hampshire have been celebrating completing a training programme.
More than 40 celebrated the completion of The National College of Teaching and Leadership Development Programme for school governors.
Councillor Peter Edgar, Hampshire County Council’s executive member for education, hosted a graduation event and congratulated the governors.
He said: ‘Education is going through major changes and through this initiative, we are supporting governors to take on the challenges brought about by change to enable them to ensure their schools are providing the highest standard of education for Hampshire’s young people.
‘This programme aims to support governing body chairmen with the demands of their role.
‘We recognise that they are volunteers, giving their time selflessly and freely and we are immensely grateful for the valuable contribution that they make. For our part, it is critical that we support them in this essential role.’
