About this event

Target Audience: All clerks but especially new clerks who have yet to complete their mandatory training

Course Provider: Kathryn Gilbert, Principal Schools Governance Officer

Aim & Purpose of the Training:

The clerk to a governing body has a vital role to play in the running of a school as through his/her organisational skills a clerk can help governors have a meaningful input into the school’s improvement.

Since the implementation of mandatory training for clerks in September, 2013, all clerks are required to have both attended and understood the training session to a sufficient standard within a one year period of the legislation being introduced or appointed as a new clerk. This session considers the make-up of governing bodies and their powers, and the statutory duties of the clerk. To ensure compliance with the mandatory requirements and assess that clerks have achieved the required level of competency from the training, there will be a short assessment the end of the session in the form of an individual written quiz or Q&A session.
