This session is free of charge for all chairs of governors who purchase the Clerking and Support Service Level Agreement. A cost of £40 will be charged to those schools/academies for chairs of governors wishing to access the session from governing boards that do not buy into the Clerking and Support Service Level agreement.
The purpose of the session is to prepare chairs for their forthcoming governing board meetings and to equip them with the knowledge, information and advice needed to effectively undertake their role.
The chairs’ briefing sessions aim to:
- Deepen the understanding of the role of the chair
- Enhance confidence and skills in managing the role and relationships
- Share leadership issues and make good use of the skills and knowledge of others
- Provide information about meeting procedure and regulations
Whilst social distancing measures continue to operate, and to ensure the safety of all service users and staff, the spring term Chairs’ Briefing will be held as a live virtual/webinar event and a recording made available for those that cannot make the event time.
A Q&A function will be available at the live event and an event link will be sent to all those booked on the event 1 week prior.
The recording of the live event will be made available via the Governance Gateway from 29 January 2020 and may be viewed anytime within a period of 6 months.
