Student Achievement

About this event

One of the board’s primary objectives in governing a school is to ensure that:

“Every student at the school is able to attain their highest possible standard in educational achievement.”

If you’re wondering what this objective means and how your school board can meet it, then this is the workshop for you!

This training is suitable for all new school board members and anyone looking for a refresher course.

You can find the resource which supports this workshop on our Knowledge Hub here.

The workshop is focused on activity-based learning and we recommend you familiarise yourself with the contents of the supporting workbook prior to coming along.

Please bring your copy of the resource to the workshop.

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:

• Recognise the key components of the Education and Training Act 2020 Legislative Framework

• Outline the National Education Learning Priorities (NELP) and the four primary objectives of boards

• Explain the board’s role in student achievement under National Administration Guideline 1 (NAG1)

• Identify the government’s priority groups and describe the strategies that exist to support them
