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.
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.
Speakers will include the Department for Education, governance experts, Academy Ambassadors alumni, multi-academy trust representatives and governance training providers covering a range of content focused on governance best practice.
