Overview of Learning
This workshop aims to assist recently new senior leaders and chairs of the board to establish and embed effective working practices which support and respect each other’s roles and responsibilities.
The session provides opportunities to discuss the respective roles of governance and management and to consider ways of working which support and develop the board and the organisation. By the end of this session, you will have:
- examined the respective roles of governance and management.
- identified through discussion agreed ways of working to support the development of the board and the organisation.
As this is a practical workshop, delegates will be asked to bring to the session copies of their board’s governance working arrangements, School Improvement/ Development Plan along with any work/ development plans for the board. These can be referred to and reflected upon during the workshop. Delegates will receive an email containing guidance and instructions ahead of the session.
All governors, trustees and local governors of schools and academies.
