Back to full list
NB: This is a two part course; delegates must attend both sessions on 8 and 15 February 2018.
There is an expectation for Chairs to keep up to date with current requirements, but the opportunity and time to do this are not always available for Chairs or experienced governors. This course is intended to help fill this gap.
Through a variety of activities, presentations, discussions and handouts governors will cover:
·         The development of chairing skills and experiences within the Governing Board
·         Auditing skills, experience and interests within your Governing Board
·         Ideas and suggestions relating to managing workloads
·         Looking at structure and organisation that may improve the efficiency of the Governing Board
·         Practical tips to support and aid the work of the Chair
·         Suggestions for preparing governors for Ofsted in line with the current Inspection Framework
Presenter: Dave Eccles, External Educational Consultant
