Foundation skills for clerks training - First date 9 Nov 2016 in King's Lynn

Ofsted quote: “The role of the clerk is pivotal to ensuring that statutory duties are met, meetings are well organised and governors receive the information they need in good time” ?

Clerks have a vital role to play in the effective running of governing board meetings, ensuring that procedures are followed and evidence is met to show the statutory responsibilities of the governing board. This session clarifies the role and responsibilities of the clerk and offers practical advice and tips. All aspects of clerking are explained, from preparation to follow up of meetings, dealing with the paperwork and generally managing the work of the governing board.

By the end of the session clerks will be able to:

• Demonstrate knowledge of the procedures for the preparation, running and follow up of governing board meetings

• Know where to get procedural and legal advice related to governance and governing board meetings

• Understand the requirements of governing board minutes, including confidential matters and Ofsted requirements


We offer this session at a charge of £140 per delegate.
