We are pleased to advise of a new session for HEI governors, which will run as a webinar on Tuesday 16 June.
Following a number of requests, we have widened this to be relevant for all Board members, Clerks and members of VCE, rather than focusing on just Audit Committee members as usual.
The impact on HEIs of the Government's strategy for COVID-19 has been immediate. Reaching into every HEI, multiple challenges arise, not least with the move to online learning as they remain open but without the usual face-to-face teaching. Brexit is (almost) a memory, and both risk registers and financial forecasts are unrecognisable compared with just a few months ago.
James Aston MBE, National Head of Education, will aim to articulate what good practice looks like, will bring together what Boards are looking at and give a perspective on the challenges and levers available to the OfS and Ministers. Drawing on our sector experience, he will use real examples and current issues being addressed by Boards and VCEs to bring matters to life.
Whilst the delivery platform is new, the format will be familiar for those who have attended the Audit Committee sessions, or sessions on Board Away days: a 45 minute session of reality checking / horizon scanning and then a question and answer session for 15 minutes.
