Whole Board Training
  • For boards with specific training needs across the board, we offer two hour face to face or webinar sessions, delivered in line with school priorities.
  • Schools are welcome to share the cost with other boards to promote sharing of best practice and development of local networks.
  • Email support@buckseducationpartnership.co.uk to find out more or to book a session for your board.

SFVS Webinar

  • In April 2019, the SFVS changed. The new SFVS is different to previous years with implications for governors.  The new form will take time to complete and follow-up and we would advise all boards to make a start on this task now with a view to sharing a draft with the governing board early in the Spring Term.
  • In response to requests from governors and clerks we worked with Herts for Learning to release a pre-recorded SFVS webinar that offers a cost effective route to understanding the changes to the SFVS
    • 35 minutes long
    • Practical advice and guidance on completing the new SFVS form
    • Can be viewed from anywhere at any time (access via a link to a password protected area on this website).
