Stakeholder engagement: The governance role

This bitesize module focusses on exploring how stakeholder can be involved meaningfully in the decision-making about what happens in their school or trust. The module is designed to:

  • Explore what effective stakeholder engagement looks like
  • Describe why effective stakeholder engagement is so important
  • Provide guidance as to the board’s role in achieving effective engagement
Study time: Approximately 15 mins

There’s a lot of talk about how important stakeholder engagement is. NGA now takes the view that it should be included as a fourth governance core function.

Unfortunately in reality it is often just that, talk. And where genuine attempts are made and ineffective engagement results this is often not for a lack of trying, it can be difficult for schools to reach some parents and other stakeholders. And it can be difficult for parents and other stakeholders to reach the school or trust.

Using case studies and interactive questions, this bitesized module explores what stakeholder engagement is, what it looks like when done well and how to go about doing it successfully in your school or trust.
