Event description This session will explore and provide guidance on effective minute taking skills with the  aim of increasing your confidence, not just for any Ofsted scrutiny of your minutes, but as part of your professional development as a Clerk and will include:

Your Role in Meetings: clarify the roles of the Chair and the Clerk to ensure that you really understand the responsibilities that come with your role.

Your Meeting Behaviour: This section highlights poor minute taking procedures and bad practice so you can see how not to do it, as well as identifying the best practice approach so you can integrate these into your ways of working.

Agenda and writing minutes: Creating an agenda and identifying a variety of styles for writing minutes, including formatting to comply with accessibility requirements

Minute Taking Practice: The practical exercises will help you to develop an effective minute taking style, and possibly adopt more modern ways of working, such as taking minutes straight onto a laptop/tablet.

There will also be a chance to share your practices, ideas and sample minutes with other clerks.

Please bring with you an anonymised copy of your minutes and your laptop.

This session will be run by Michelle Waters, Ealing’s School improvement and governance officer who leads on clerking support and is herself a local governing board member and clerk.
