Session impact

The role of clerk is an integral part of any governing board.

With governing boards working hard to ensure the best educational standards in schools, clerks have a core role in ensuring compliance and that procedures are followed.

This training is designed to give you all the skills and tools needed to ensure your governing arsenal is as effective as can be.  

The purpose of the session

Clerking a governing board means providing a professional service: offering administrative support, guidance on compliance and information and advice on procedural matters and best practise.  At the end of this session you will have a clear picture of the extent of the role, the challenges, and some of the strategies you can employ to make the role one you can perform effectively.
