Stakeholder engagement: the fourth core function of governance

Governing Matters

Meaningful engagement with stakeholders contributes powerfully and directly to providing enriching experiences and high-quality education for our children and young people. It also helps to ensure the experience is relevant to the real world that those children and young people will shortly explore as adults.

“All children have the right to express their views and have them taken into account and given due weight according to their age and maturity, in all matters affecting them ”

Article 12 of the UN convention on the Rights of the Child.
