Schools are diverse institutions that play a key role in delivering effective teaching and learning to its students. There are different aspects to an academy or MAT that will need the support, guidance, and advice of a trustee to help improve education settings. It is vital that the executive leader and staff have an effective board of trustees that can help support them by making strategic decisions that benefit the setting, the students, and the local community.
Developed by Leonie Huie, education and governance advisor, this Essential CPD course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to gain a comprehensive understanding of the role of the trustee and appreciate the work they do to support the executive leader, teachers, and pupils of MATs.
Please note: This course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives of the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
