Welcome to the National Training Programme for New Governors (NTPfNG). This programme has been prepared to help governor trainers in LAs and diocesan boards ensure new governors have the information they need to become effective school governors. The training programme has been updated to include changes introduced by the 2005 Education Act and the New Relationship with Schools.

The training programme toolkit used by trainers and a workbook for governors can be downloaded from this page.

Although the trainers toolkit and the workbook were updated in November 2005, the video and CD-ROM that accompany the training programme remain the same and have not been amended in any way.

If you would like to order the video or CD-ROM, contact the Department via the Departmental Publications link.
