In addition to attending meetings:-
(i) Trustees are also “linked” to members of the Senior Leadership Team and meet three times each year to:
- To understand the role and responsibilities of the SLT member
- To consider any relevant issues that have been raised during Full Trustees Board or Team meetings
- To identify any areas which may be valuable to enhance Trustees knowledge – this may include attendance at and observation of relevant meetings
- To seek advice from SLT member on areas of work that would benefit from Trustees support or challenge
(ii) At least twice per annum Trustees have ‘Shadow A Student’ week whereby they attend classes with a student. These are designed to improve governor understanding of the college whilst also gaining an understanding of the student experience.
