Matters Arising

Governor Training

In response to a question from the Chairman, the Head of Registry Services noted that no funding had been available to send the Students’ Union President on the Leadership Foundation training for student governors. Following further comments from Members that such training ought to be provided and would involve only a very modest cost, the Chairman requested that the Head of Registry Services provide a note on the matter to the Board of Governors setting out training options and cost implications.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Principal setting out amendments to the School’s Instrument and Articles of Government and the terms of reference of the School’s Teaching & Learning Board.

            The Head of Registry Services noted that the Comptroller and City Solicitor’s Department would be providing final feedback on the current draft shortly, that the Remembrancer had provided some drafting comments, and that the Chamberlain had expressed some concerns over the level of financial expertise guaranteed on the Board under the proposed arrangements.          

The Chairman requested Members to provide their comments on the draft Instrument and Articles of Government. A Member noted that he was in favour of the proposed reduction of Common Councilmen on the Board to eight, two of whom would be ex-officio members. He voiced concern over the fact that one proposed ex-officio would be the Chairman of the Culture, Heritage and Libraries Committee, noting that City Corporation committees were more likely to be subject to amendment in their terms of reference and remit than the Board of Governors of the School, making it likely that a future Chairman of the Culture, Heritage and Libraries Committee would not necessarily be a relevant choice for ex-officio member compared with the Chairman of the Barbican Centre Board, which would continue to have close links with the School in the future. Therefore the Member suggested that the eight Common Council members instead be broken down into seven members elected by the Court with the Chairman of the Barbican Centre Board as ex-officio.

            The Member went on to voice concern that Common Council members of the Board may not have the time available due to factors such as work pressure to serve on the Board’s subcommittees, and in keeping with that, ex-officio members in particular may not have sufficient time
