The first Hot Topics webinar of the new academic year took place on Thursday 20th September 2018. The webinar provided school governors, academy trustees and those who serve on Local Academy Committees, with an update on the latest developments in educational policy, practice and consultation.
We carefully research all that happens in education and filter what we believe is relevant to the governance of schools in England. This webinar included updates on:
• Keeping Children Safe in Education (New for September 2018)
• Teachers' Pay Award 2018
• Ofsted Updates for 2018-19
• Update on National Funding Formula
• GDPR update
• Academies Financial Handbook 2018
The webinar was hosted by our governance expert; Steve Barker. Opinion polls were conducted during the webinar and participants had the opportunity to ask questions, by typing them in or through being invited to ask them, live on air and in person.
