Event description The NGA have given us permission to use their learning link module to take governors and clerks through sitting on/clerking a panel.

Getting panel work right is an important aspect of governance. A poorly organised panel meeting with unsuitable, untrained panel members, late or missing paperwork, poor understanding and application of the relevant law and regulation is unlikely to lead to a good decision, respected by all. It will also leave parties, clerk or panel member with a bad impression of how the process works.

This module provides a general introduction to the typical process of panel work for all types of panel. It provides practical, informed guidance as to what governors and trustees and the clerk need to do at all stages of the process from identifying the relevant regulatory framework, selecting the right panel, conducting the meeting itself all the way to understanding how to approach the making and communication of the decision.

You will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session 
Training objectives By the end of this module, you will have an awareness of the following areas that are relevant for all review panels:

  • How to work within the relevant law, regulation and policy

  • The role and responsibilities of all those involved in a review panel

  • The panel review process
