Governors Pathway

For new and continuing Governors, Clerks and Secretaries. 

Rethinking Governance is an online programme run in conjunction with the University of York that runs over the course of five weeks. The course allows participants to improve their understanding of the context of HE, and explore some of the key issues demanding the attention of senior leaders and Governors. Participants will analyse public service reform trends including the influence of business-focused values and techniques, and then relate these themes and issues to the HE context while debating some of the ‘big questions’ for public service delivery.

Through exploring the current context for public service organisations, Rethinking Governance will enable you to develop knowledge and understanding that will allow you, in your role as a Governor, to operate more thoroughly and effectively.

Access to the course materials and additional resources is via a virtual learning environment. Led by tutors from the University of York, a series of discussion fora allow participants to engage and exchange with your peers in order to examine and discuss key issues.
