The NRCSE can provide training anywhere in England. For local authorities and/or groups of supplementary schools we have combined our governance and quality assurance courses into a package which is offered over 3-days. These days can be consecutive, over a month or term, or even spread out over three terms.
Managing your supplementary school/out of school activity safely and effectively
The purpose of this acclaimed three-day course is to help supplementary schools (teaching core-curriculum, language, faith or a combination of these) to prepare a School Management Pack consisting of
- A Welcome Pack for Parents
- Staff and Volunteer Handbook
- Management Committee Guide

All schools completing the course and their own school management documents will be eligible for a school visit to assess the quality of their provision. Developed this year, the course has already been well received in Brent, Barnet, Ealing, Hammersmith, Sheffield and will be running in Kensington & Chelsea and Ipswich later this year.
