New Trustees have a steep learning curve. Depending what experience they have of being on a board, knowing how schools operate or have personal or corporate specialist knowledge, new board members still have a great deal of understanding to consume before they have the bigger picture required to be an effective trustee.
The Trustee Induction programme is designed as a half-day fully online training experience for board members so that they can spend time in a one to one session that takes them through the roles and responsibilities of trustees. All too often the process of a thorough induction is missed, which leads to confused roles and, worse yet, mixed messages or micromanaging. This half-day training ensures that the duties of the board are explained and in turn leads to accelerating the impact trustees can have on the board.
