13. Do headteachers have to attend the mandatory training?
Headteachers will be exempt from completing the mandatory training, although it would be considered good practice to for newly appointed headteachers to attend the training as it would give them an understanding of:
- the role of governors from the induction training;
- what the data training is about and how to present data to governors;
- the chair’s role and how to develop a good working and supportive relationship with him/her.
