Clerking Competency Framework

Consultant: Steve BarkerDate posted: April 2017

The Department for Education (DfE) has published the new Clerking Competency Framework. The framework is subtitled “The knowledge, skills and behaviours required to provide professional clerking to the governing boards of maintained schools, academies and multi-academy trusts.” Together with the new Governance Handbook and Competency Framework for Governance, both published in January this year, these three documents provide the foundation of the government’s view on what effective governance looks like in 2017 and beyond.

Apprenticeships in schools – new DfE guidance

In April 2017 the government changed the funding mechanism for apprenticeships in England. As a consequence many schools and academies are now required to contribute to the Apprenticeship Levy. New guidance, published by the Department for Education, in June 2018, provides information on what apprenticeships are, how to access them, how they can contribute to improving the skills within the school workforce, and how the Apprenticeship Levy and public sector target apply to schools.
