Evalu8ing Your Governing Board
Good governance is essential to the success of any academy trust. As trustees, you have a key role in facilitating this success, but how do you know if you are doing so effectively?
We are conscious of the enormous time commitment already required of you, and so we have teamed up with Evalu8 to provide an online evaluation tool.
Effective in terms of both time and cost, this tool uses the All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG) 21 questions for a mutil-academy trust (MAT) board to help you evaluate your own performance.
MAT governance is evolving rapidly and NGA has become extremely knowledgeable about the wealth of practice that is developing, including many of the pitfalls. The Academies Financial Handbook (paras 1.5.14 and 1.5.15 refer) requires MATs to review their governance arrangements and this tool is an ideal starting point for a trust board.
The package is available at £225. If your governing board are GOLD members of NGA you can take advantage of the special discounted price of £199.
