Virtual Governance - how to work remotely (for Governors and Trustees) Download Flyer

A guide for boards on being effective whilst working remotely  

During the lockdown of summer 2020 governing boards were advised by the DfE to step-back to allow their school to focus on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. From September 2020 it is expected that boards pick-up their core duties again and are holding their schools to account for catching up after the lockdown. But how can you achieve this whilst still working remotely?

This webinar provides guidance on the legalities of governing remotely, and how to continue to be an effective board and discharge your duties whilst staying safe.

On this webinar you will explore:

  • Understanding the legal position
  • Reflecting on the effectiveness of your virtual meetings
  • How to recruit and induct new governors remotely
  • Listening to your stakeholders
  • What can be monitored remotely?
  • When is it necessary to go into school?
  • How to support your headteacher virtually
All delegates receive an electronic copy of the presentations and supporting materials and resources to help them be more impactful in their governance role.
