When joining an academy trust board, new non-executive directors (NEDS) will meet the same challenges as any business board: to define a compelling vision and strategy; to operate within financial constraints and to create an effective governance structure. However, there can be barriers faced by those joining boards from business and the professions.
After an engaging talk at our Board Devleopment Day in 2018, Mike Pettifer, Director, Academies and Maintained Schools, Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) will elaborate on how the ESFA assesses financial performance and give insight to lessons learnt from the ESFA's recent trust financial reviews.
BetterBoard seminars will focus on sharing best practice from Academy Ambassadors alumni and sector leaders. Topics include financial governance, school improvement for non-educationalists, risk and more.
Thank you to KPMG for kindly hosting the BetterBoard seminars across the country.
