Long-standing partnership with Aon

Our long-standing partnership with Aon ensures that the Governance Evaluator independent schools solutions specifically address the particular requirements of the education sector with up to date and relevant content. Informed by Aon’s Independent Schools Risk Report (2016, 17 & 18), and developed in consultation with an Education think tank, our content enables governing bodies to quickly and easily build governance capability insights that are clear, visual and actionable.

Education-specific content for Education

The education-specific content addresses the key governance themes of Curriculum, Staff & Student Safety & Wellbeing and Talent Development to enable governing bodies to assess their current performance and potential for improvement.

Our evaluation tools for the education sector are NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) approved courses. Members of NSW independent school governing bodies will qualify for one hour of professional learning for each of the Board Governance and Development & Skills Matrix questionnaires.
