Trustees Additional Responsibilities

In addition to attending meetings:-

(i) Trustees are also “linked” to members of the Senior Leadership Team and meet three times each year to:

  1. To understand the role and responsibilities of the SLT member
  2. To consider any relevant issues that have been raised during Full Trustees Board or Team meetings
  3. To identify any areas which may be valuable to enhance Trustees knowledge – this may include attendance at and observation of relevant meetings
  4. 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.
