School Board Members are faced with a myriad of challenges as they navigate the role and responsibilities associated with governing a school.

To make this less daunting, Independent Schools Victoria (ISV) has been offering school governance training for almost two decades.

In 2023, we will offer a refreshed format of our major governance training as a full day conference. This will incorporate facilitated question and answer sessions, plus opportunities for attendees to raise their own concerns and workshop a conundrum.

Why attend?

  • Better understand your governance roles and responsibilities
  • Learn how to manage a crisis in your school
  • Understand your risk management obligations
  • Unpack the role requirements of the Chair and the Principal
  • Examine the financial literacy required to meet your governance obligations
  • Explore key issues that your school is likely to encounter in the coming 12 months

This forum also provides an opportunity to network with other Independent school governors.
