Wellbeing Governance E-Module

Mental Health & Wellbeing Governance Lead E-Module 

Leeds Beckett University Carnegie School of Education in Partnership with SAS

Creating lead governor roles and assigning them to individual members of a governing body is an effective way to ensure governance remains strategic and focused on key issues. The development of a Mental Health and Wellbeing Governance Lead will demonstrate your governing boards commitment to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of both staff and pupils across the whole organisation. The creation of the role also emphasises the importance of establishing robust mental health in schools, providing equal opportunities, building resilience and developing support strategies and tools.
Completion of our online course will award a governer with the ‘Carnegie Mental Health & Wellbeing Governance Lead’ status.
