Leaders of Governance Masterclass

Leaders of Governance Masterclass

National Leaders of Governance Masterclasses – delivered by the Confederation of School Trusts (CST)

As the sector body for school trusts, CST is working to prepare and deliver masterclasses for National Leaders of Governance working with School Trusts. CST is undertaking this work as part of their core charitable purpose to build sector capacity and advance education for public benefit. This masterclass is being offered FREE to all National Leaders of Governance who hold the Local Leaders of Governance in School Trusts Boards in the South West region.

The masterclasses will cover:

• The core proposition of Trust governance – and how it is different from maintained school governance (duties under company law and charity law, employer responsibilities, fiduciary and regulatory regimes, risk, and structures of governance including the principle of significant separation). The session will refer to both the Academies Financial Handbook and core DfE material but it will also make reference to the body of literature on effective governance from outside the sector, for example the FRC Guidance on Board Effectiveness and Corporate Governance Code.

• Common / persistent problems that Trust’s experience and the core domain-specific knowledge NLGs need to support trusts to address these problems and secure effective governance.

 CST’s Improvement Capacity Framework for Trust Governance which is based on the Competency Framework for Governance and is carefully designed to align with the MAT capacity framework (school improvement) which was developed by the RSC office in the South West.
