This handbook is intended to provide part of the induction procedure for new governors through which they will gain a better understanding of their new role and to provide them with essential sources of information. An induction checklist will be completed at the formal induction (Appendix 1) and filed in the central governance record. It is also a useful document for prospective governors to read and consider before deciding whether to apply for any vacancies within the governing body that may arise.
