The Competency Framework for Governance sets out the skills and effective behaviours expected of governors and specifically the Chair. These include:
• Leadership skills with the ability to build and work within a team
• The capacity to have good working relationships with key figures
• The ability to think strategically, be focused with a knowledge of statutory requirements and regulations
This course aims to consider these principles of effective chairing and ways to develop good practice and is suitable for Chairs and Vice Chairs of Governing Boards, Chairs of Committees and Governors wishing to be a Chair in the future.
The session is designed to be practical and interactive with the opportunity to explore with other CoG, VCoG and Chairs of Committees, key principles for effective leadership of the governing body.
A focus will be around sharing best practice, potential areas of challenge and exploring how to better motivate and deploy individual governors towards more effective governance.
