Edsential look forward and are delighted to host this networking session as part of our Partnership with Wirral LA .

The purpose of the session is for the Local Authority to provide a FREE networking opportunity for Governors to network with each other, raise topical issues and have an opportunity to engage in a short CPD input.  

Networking sessions will provide:

  • An opportunity to support , network,  share ideas,  insight and best practice
  • To develop knowledge ,skills and confidence in areas that relate to the short, medium and long term role and responsibilities of Governors
  • A forum to provide a voice for Governors, Chairs and Vice Chairs
  • The Provision of Tools and resources to assist in the role and responsibility for school Governance

These Networking sessions are an opportunity to meet other Governors, share experiences, knowledge and understanding.  A range of topics are covered across the year such as:

  • Finance
  • Being strategic
  • Training and development of governors
  • Recruitment and retention of governors
  • Evaluation, visits, monitoring and Reports

Recruitment and retention of Governors is a key concern for most governing bodies and finding the right people has always been a challenge.  Not just anybody will do but do we know who we are looking for?

The focus of the next networking session 23/03/2022 is What Makes A Good Chair:

The Chair of the board is a key player in school governance.  This networking session is an opportunity for all governors to share with the wider governance community their experiences of what makes good chairing and consider how practice can be developed.  Consideration could be given to the following headings:

  • The ability to influence without dominating
  • Emotional intelligence – what is it and how do you use it?
  • Decisiveness – to be or not to be
  • How to chair meetings
  • How to get the best out of the team
  • How to support the headteacher
  • Difficult conversations

Please note the revised dates for the summer term to allow for the addition of a third meeting, which replaces the meeting which was postponed in February.

Governors are required to book on each date they would like to attend.
