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.
The most straightforward & intelligent way
to improve governance in the education sector
Governance Evaluation combines intelligent technology solutions with expert governance consultants to aid in building your governance capabilities. We work with you to combine the complementary solutions, designing a governance program that meets the needs of your board or council.
Board Governance Program
Our Board Governance Program is designed to improve the collective capabilities of your board. Founded on evaluation, the principles of good governance and the responsibilities of governing bodies within the environment in which they are operating, you can design your program to meet the specific needs of your board.
“We’ve evaluated for the last 4 years, it’s a foundational part of our annual board calendar for supporting a strong culture for quality and safety.” – Bronwyn Pike
Director Development Program
Our Director Development Program helps you to build the individual capabilities of your directors whilst providing insight into the collective skills of your board. The program supports both new and experienced director development, and aids succession planning and induction for the enhanced director onboarding.
Our Peer Review solution helps you to better understand the individual capabilities of your governing body through a highly confidential process that seeks to inform individual development plans.
Our Sub-Committees Review solution provides an indepth analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of your sub-committees and looks to identify any gaps in your sub-committees role for informing good decision making by the governing body.
Our Independent Convening solutions add rigour to your program through their facilitation skills, extensive knowledge of best practice evaluation processes, and their governance and sector expertise.
