If you are a newly appointed governor, academy representative or director in one of our diocesan schools then please complete a skills audit by clicking on the link below. This will assist the DES in identifying training needs for all of those involved in the governance of our schools.
We also recommend that all existing governors complete this skills audit on an annual basis to ensure that they identify their training needs, which can then be met by suitable providers, including the DES.
The DES does not have their own skills audit, however one is provided by the Catholic Education Service and the DES would recommend its use. The audit can be accessed via that link below.
