A briefing session for chairs of Bolton schools and academies. 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 attending 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
While the session aims to be no more than hour long, 30 minutes has been allowed at the end of the session for networking opportunities.
This event is currently planned as a face-to-face event; however, this will be reviewed following current government guidance on social distancing closer to the time.
