Welcome to Clerking (Both sessions must be attended) | Octavo Partnership

Course Date

22 Oct 2021 10:00 – 11:30

Overview

According to the current Governance Handbook, high quality professional clerking is crucial to the effective functioning of the Board. The Clerk’s role is not only about good and effective organisation and
administration, but also, and more importantly, about helping the Board understand its role, functions and legal duties and supporting the Chair to enable and facilitate strategic debate and decision making. The Handbook also recommends that the clerk should be the Board’s ‘governance professional’.”

This two part development session will look at the role and responsibilities of the governance professional in more detail.

This session is non-chargeable for those schools who have an annual Octavo Governance training contract.

Description

A core element of an effective Governing Board is a highly organised Clerk who is not only a competent minute taker but able to provide the Board with the necessary guidance and support to ensure the Board fulfils its collective statutory obligations.
