Matters Arising that do not appear elsewhere on the agenda

Minutes:

The Higher Education Code of Governance and the Guildhall School (page 4) – The Chairman referred to the Principal’s comments at the last meeting of the Governance and Effectiveness Committee stating that he was anxious that the assurances provided by HEFCE at their 2011 review regarding the Guildhall School’s compliance with the Code and, in particular, the relationship between the School and the City of London Corporation, would not be repeated in 2016.

 

The Chairman was pleased to report that the same assurances had, in fact, been given following the School’s HEFCE review in April 2016. He reminded Governors that a report detailing HEFCE’s findings alongside some recommendations for future implementation had been received by the Board at their last meeting.
