  • Monitoring of reviews of Governance in Sixth Form Colleges and other work being undertaken by relevant government departments
  • Monitoring and discussing the latest developments in education policy and matters directly affecting Sixth Form Colleges, influencing policy and responding to developments where necessary
  • Considering and contributing to the development of induction, training and support materials for Clerks and Governors
  • Responding to matters of particular difficulty, sensitivity or emergency and offering advice to member colleges
  • Assisting with the organisation of workshops for Governors and an annual Clerks Conference.
