Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) offers a catalogue of governance tailored to the needs of independent school governors. The ISQ School Governance Course consists of 12 governance modules designed to support independent school boards, councils and school management teams.
The School Governance Course provides participants with a deep understanding of all aspects of governance relevant to an independent school setting.
Governors benefit from learning from highly respected facilitators and discussing common governance issues with members of other school boards. They gain the tools to make a positive contribution to their organisation.
The course is designed to be flexible to fit governors' schedules. Participants complete the 12 modules via a series of 90-minute webinars, offered both during and after business hours (including Saturdays). They can be undertaken in any order.
Governors from member schools can find out more on ISQ's Member Hub.
