Target Group: Governors dealing with grievance, dismissal and appeal hearings
Tutors: Atia Williams and Marcus Cooper
This session aims to provide information about the legal responsibilities governors have as employers of staff in church schools in relation to grievance and discipline, dismissals and appeals and to look at the policies and procedures which need to be in place to enable governors to deal with such matters in a fair, consistent and objective way.
It will explore the role of governors in handling issues and in particular their participation in hearings and equip participants with the skills and knowledge to assist them to carry out their duties effectively. Participants will receive an information pack and should come prepared to participate; there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
