This is linked to the course in October which you must attend too
This training course consists of two linked days (PARTICIPANTS NEED TO ATTEND BOTH DAYS) and will provide you with the opportunity to consider the different ways that you can be involved in supporting primary and secondary schools. It will help you to discern where you can best use your time and skills to have the most impact. The course will give you a chance to consider your role in:

Governance – including understanding the role of governors, foundation governors and the ex officio; governor approaches to the key opportunities and challenges facing all schools/academies; how to support and challenge a school/academy; looking at SDBE foundation role appointment policies and processes and a brief look at the current educational landscape.

RE – take time to think about what does ‘effective Religious Education’ look like in a school? You will learn about the statement of entitlement and the statutory requirements for RE; ways in which you can help pupils to know about and understand Christianity as a living world faith and examples of ways that schools record pupils’ work in RE will be shared.

Collective Worship – a chance to explore ways in which the Church community can support primary and secondary schools to develop Collective Worship that is inclusive, invitational and inspiring and helps them to express their Christian vision.

SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist schools) – consider how you are enabling your school and church to work together to enable everyone to experience and live life in all its fullness and the power of a Christian vision in transforming lives.

Day 1: All participants will take time to think about where the different roles interrelate and recent developments in the requirements and expectations of schools. The day will give allow you to consider your current roles within primary and secondary schools and discern where, as a minister, you can be most effective.

Day 2: All participants will be able to choose 2 workshops that will each explore one of the 4 above areas in more depth. These will be practical sessions aimed at drawing out and sharing good practice, quality resources and practical skills to resource you in your ministry to schools.
