Course description

Local Area Forums: Is your board fit for the future?



The forums will be led by the ESGF and will be spilt into four key sections which address our readiness for the next academic year and the changes it will bring.



1. Succession Planning: this section will focus on the role of the Chair and Vice Chair and the proactive steps that boards can take to ensure clear succession pathways.
2. Leadership in the board: this section will look at the distinction between ‘link’ governors and ‘lead’ governors and ask you to consider if members of your boards feel confident to lead on vital areas, thereby taking pressure off the Chair and Vice Chair and encouraging deeper relationships between all members of the board and school staff.
3. Schools White Paper: this section will look at the Schools White Paper, published in March, looking at the role of the local authority in the evolving education landscape.
4. Clerk as Governance Professional: the final section will look at the role of the clerk and ask you to consider whether the relationship between the clerk and the board is such that it is maximising their potential as a trusted adviser".
