EDI Training Programme for Governors and Trustees 23-24

We believe that supporting and challenging individuals in their beliefs around Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), as well as ensuring a cultural commitment to EDI work at a strategic level, are the best means of securing safe and inclusive schools for the whole community.

Therefore, we have commissioned Diverse Educators to deliver a two-part programme to help Governors and Trustees to understand core concepts related to EDI and to support them in shaping their strategic approach.

Diverse Educators are committed to moving the agenda forwards regarding Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in our school system.  They work with schools, to support them with their EDI strategy and EDI training needs. 

Each training session is live and interactive.  A recording will be sent shortly after the event. Schools can purchase each webinar either separately or as a bundle.

Session 1: An Introduction to EDI for Governors and Trustees – 5th December 7pm until 8:30pm

A session to support Governors and Trustees to understand core concepts related to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

The training session includes:

  • Developing an understanding of key EDI concepts and language

Session 2: The Strategic Leadership of EDI for Governors and Trustees – 6th February 7pm until 8:30pm

A session to support governing bodies in shaping the strategic direction of an EDI commitment.  The session will support you on your journey to develop confidence and competence in shaping inclusive policies and practices.

The training session includes:

  • Leading sustainable change over time
  • Creating an EDI infrastructure to distribute the leadership
  • Reviewing policies and practices for inclusion
  • Navigating potential media and PR fall outs around our commitment

Intended impact on practice:  These sessions will support Governors and Trustees in developing their knowledge of core concepts related to EDI as well as providing them with the confidence to lead sustainable strategic change overtime.

Intended improvement and/or evaluation of impact for pupils, including those with SEND and/or disadvantaged backgrounds.

Through developing a strategic approach for establishing, embedding and sustaining the school/trust Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strategy all pupils feel valued and belong.  In turn this leads to:

  • Better preparing pupils for life in the modern world
  • Improved mental health and well-being
  • Improved achievement for all pupils
