School Governor Training

With more than 20 years experience of working with young people and working closely with education providers, Early Break has developed affordable training for school governors, heads, deputy heads and senior management teams.   All attendees on our “School Governor Training” will receive a copy of our in-depth, 40 page, “Drug Facts” educational resource.

This interactive training course will aim at arming senior professionals such as school governors working in education with the tools and knowledge to develop and implement drug policies and safeguarding strategies.  Through group discussion and activities attendees will cover drug and alcohol strategies, drug and alcohol policies, PSHE Association guidance on recommended curriculum and the most current OFSTED reports and information from the Department for Education and the Association of Chief Police Officers.
