New Clerking & Governance Offer

GLK Solutions are pleased to bring an exciting new offer to new and existing clients.  Clerking and governance is an important part of school leadership and further emphasis has been placed on governors’ responsibilities in school following the updated Governance Handbook from the Department for Education and the introduction of the Governor Competencies Framework.

When working with our clients, and as governors ourselves, we see regularly the importance of good clerking to ensure governing boards can be effective in their role.  We also see how importance effective clerking is when a school goes through an Ofsted inspection.

Anecdotally we hear a lot of feedback from our clients about their frustrations in finding a quality and consistent clerking service.  The role of the governor and clerk have changed and schools are keen to update the support they receive.  Meeting the changing demands of education and governance has resulted in some schools feeling exposed in terms of their clerking arrangement.  Some schools have felt a regular change in clerk has hindered their development as well as some clerks have not been prepared or knowledgeable in areas such as multi-academy trusts or academies.

Our clerking offer benefits from:

  • We are completely independent
  • Our team are serving Governors
  • We have a track record of working across a range of education settings
  • Continuous improvement and development sits at the heart of our offer

We are excited to work with new and existing clients to support governance and clerking and we offer a no obligation meeting to discuss how we could support your school or Trust.  Please see our Clerking and Governance offer page for more information.
