The chair usually leads induction
The chair should lead induction for a new governor but can delegate the responsibility to someone with the necessary governance experience, such as the vice-chair or governance professional. In multi-academy trusts where there is a governance lead, they could be the person responsible for inductions.
Whoever's responsible, the individual should keep the headteacher/principal/CEO and clerk updated on the new governor's progress.
Set up a meeting with your new governor
If you're leading induction, arrange a video call with the new governor.
You don’t need to invite the headteacher or CEO to this meeting as they don’t need to be involved yet. This will also help the new governor understand that you’re responsible for providing the leadership and direction of the governing board, not the headteacher.
Present the vision for improvement and strategy for the future Explain how the governing board and its committees function Outline your expectations
