Are you already a school trustee or on a sports board or thinking of joining one?
Being a volunteer on a school or sports board is a great way to support, nurture and grow your governance skills with some degree of immunity from personal liability and can be a great stepping stone into the world of commercial boards and directorships.
Many board members and trustees tend to focus on the operational or financial health of a school or sports club – cash flow, debt ratios etc. But the outcome of a weak safety focus can have a far reaching and devastating impact on financial continuity of the school or sports club, on the reputation of the school or sports club and on the mental health of the community.
Health and safety in schools and sports clubs is a vast topic covering a wide range of subjects and experiences. Health scares like severe allergic reactions, bullying, abuse and digital safety are becoming progressively more common and high profile. Dealing with regulations and managing the health and safety of contractors, third party providers, volunteers, children and the community can be tricky – not to mention ‘the media’ if something does go wrong.
Join Chris, a high school director and previous sports body chair, in this fast-paced and practical session, for 45min plus time for questions. Learn good school and sports governance safety and health habits and how to focus your attention on safety awareness skills you can take into any governance and director role.
