Course description

Professional clerking has a vital role to play in meeting the administrative and procedural requirements of boards and enabling efficient
and effective discussion and decision making.

The education sector can be a fast moving field, and you may find it tricky to stay on top of changes and statutory requirements. When considering the effectiveness of school governance, the role of the professional clerk cannot be underestimated and it is considered essential that clerks keep up to date with changes in the sector and identify good practice to make the most of the hours worked.

It is also recognised that the role can feel isolating when working independently of the school. The Area Network meetings give clerks the opportunity to network and share best practice with their colleagues.

Training objectives

These sessions, delivered three times per year, are essential for all clerks who want to keep up to date with key changes in local and national issues impacting on the roles and responsibilities of governing boards. The meetings include workshops and the sharing of effective practice in an open forum.
Briefing papers and publications are provided at the sessions.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the webinar it is anticipated that clerks will:

• know more about key national and local issues for governing boards
• understand more about the way to address key matters for your school's governing board under Covid-19
• be able to discuss, share and develop good and effective practice.
