This Hot Topics session focused on a range of topics impacting on governance in the Summer term of 2020. Rather than focus specifically on the impact of the Coronavirus on the process of governance, which has been covered extensively in other webinars, we explored elements of governance which will be relevant to the work of governing boards this term.
This webinar focused on the specific skills and behaviours required to chair a virtual Governing Board meeting. We explored the impact of meeting in a virtual environment on preparation, participation and engagement, and ensuring clarity of understanding for all participants. We also reflected on how current Department for Education guidance on governance during the Coronavirus school closures, should inform the process of agenda setting.
This webinar, for Chairs of Governing Boards, examined leadership of the board during the current COVID-19 pandemic and the associated school closures. Governance continues to play a vital role in overseeing the work of the school or academy and the temporary changes in provision from education to childcare.
We are hosting a Twitter Q&A on the topic of ensuring effective governance through the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic.
School governors should not meet during Coronavirus situation. Guidance how virtual meets can take place.
Despite the continued relaxation of lockdown rules within England and the partial return of some pupils to some schools, governors should not be going into school or making unnecessary journeys. The role of governance remains vital and we continue to offer a comprehensive and varied webinar programme, covering a range of governance issues for governors, trustees and clerks. Better Governor webinars make it possible for all those involved in governance to ensure their knowledge of governance remains up-to-date and their skills continue to develop in the absence of face-to-face opportunities being available.
This webinar explored the growing interest in the sustainability of schools. Media attention in global warming, waste reduction, recycling and ecologically sound behaviours has focused pupils, parents and staff reflection on knowledge, learning and practice in schools. We considered global drivers and some of the local solutions that schools are successfully implementing, and how school governance should ensure effective oversight.
This Hot Topics webinar focused on what is new in Education that governors, trustees and clerks need to know about.
