At the end of September, the new team of tpm governors were invited to a welcome meeting comprising an induction, orientation and “get to know you” session.
Our new team of tpm governors are a team of critical friends. In essence, they are the perfect mix of expert consultants; individuals who have worked with tpm in their respective areas of excellence over the last two decades. Each has already made a key part in helping tpm improve its qualifications, skills, practice and outcomes for learners and employers.
tpm governors discussed roles and responsibilities
The meeting included a familiarisation session which focussed on the seven core values of AELP’s Code of Good Governance for Independent Training Providers, and also on Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework. In addition, governors and directors discussed:
- Roles of the non-executive director and governors
- Skills mix and gaps
- Governance activities and planning including observations, attendance at board meetings, interviews with staff and stakeholders, and curriculum development
Senior management team role in governance
In addition to the support from our new tpm governors, our competent, skilled and highly experienced senior management team (SMT) underpin daily operations at tpm. This includes a full-time internal CIMA qualified accountant.
Furthermore, an external accountancy company Alexander Myerson and Co. Limited provide us with additional support. Established in 1936 they have acquired an enviable reputation for providing excellent business advice to clients.
