The Federation of Governing Bodies of South African Schools (Fedsas) will continue to provide more training opportunities to newly elected SGB members across the country. This comes after about 5 000 SGB members from 800 schools in all nine province have already received training over the past three weeks. Deputy CEO, Jaco Deacon, says more than 930 SGB members in the Free State have received training with more than 260 in the Northern Cape and more than 600 in Northwest.
According to him training is also provided to non-members as the federation believes knowledgeable SGB’s are indispensable to education in the country. Training focuses the function of SGB’s, aspects SGB’s need to avoid and help provided by Fedsas.
Fedsas will provide a total of 120 training sessions while only 40 of these sessions are left. Deacon appeals to SGB’s to contact a Fedsas provincial manager to arrange attendance.
