Avec Governance - Supporting Outstanding Governance

8th February 2013, 5:04
Avec Governance was launched in September 2012 in response to numerous requests from Academy leaders and governors for a governance service that recognised the additional demands of the Academy context.

The service brings together both operational and strategic support for governors into a single offer that is fully integrated with Avec's existing suite of services to Academies.

Our new service is already supporting Academies across the North East, with the Ascent Academies Trust in Sunderland being the latest to take advantage of Avec Governance.

" We started using Avec's new governance service in September after looking for a service that would meet all our governance needs in one package. We have found Avec to be extremely professional in providing a bespoke  service that meets the needs of our school and has exceeded our expectations of such a service. Our Governance partner has worked alongside the school in a supportive, yet challenging, manner to ensure the Governing Body is equipped to meet the diverse demands of their role. Our partner is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Governance and in only two months has had a massive, positive impact on all matters relating to Governance."

"Our expectations of AVEC Governance have been more than fulfilled. Not only does our Governance Partner support the governing body with training and making a range of important decisions, but is always available to offer me advice in leading and developing the team of governors in managing the business of the governing body. The help and guidance we have been given by our Governing Partner to date has given me total confidence in performing my role during the changing era of becoming an academy, and particularly in ensuring that, as a governing body, we fulfil our statutory obligations and responsibilities. I cannot speak highly enough of the service we are receiving in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and promptness."

Ann Williams - Chair of Governors: St George's Church of England Academy

The new Ofsted framework has really sharpened the focus on governance during the inspection process. Our experienced Governance Partners will work with you to ensure that you will be able to demonstrate with confidence that you are making a real difference to standards and quality in your own Academy.
