The Role of the Chair | Octavo Partnership

Course Date

06 Oct 2021 18:00 – 19:45

Overview

An effective Chair is expected to demonstrate a wide of skills and responsibilities. This development session, using a mixture of presentation and discussion, will provide greater insight into the role of a modern-day Chair, either of Board or Committee.

This course is non-chargeable for those schools with an annual Octavo Governance training contract.

Description

Considering the breadth of the role of Chair, either of the Full Board or a Committee, can discourage some Governors who are unclear as to the roles and responsibilities of a Chair and how leadership skills, such as the effective chairing of a meeting, can be developed.

This development session provides an insight into the Chair’s role in strategic leadership and in ensuring accountability and will offer opportunities to share experiences and good practice and examine the skills required to chair a meeting effectively.

This session will assist Governors’ development of all the key competencies within the Governance Competency Framework.
