Question Mark offers three main workshop formats, in addition to fully-customised ones using the amazing LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology.
Having created both the Thinking Governance programme and The RIGHT Programme, QM can help you get the maximum out of these ground-breaking governance resources.
· Thinking Governance – overview (2 hours)
A two-hour interactive workshop (ideally suited to school governing bodies, MAT Boards or Diocesan staff teams) which gives an overview of Thinking Governance and the very significant strategic gains it offers. On completing the workshop, you and your team will be well-placed to run the Thinking Governance programme for yourselves or for others.
· Thinking Governance – full programme (6 hours)
Available as a full day, or as two evening sessions, in this interactive workshop, Mark will take you through the whole Thinking Governance programme, with the content fully customised for your situation. At the end of the workshop, you'll have gained all the insights the full TG programme offers, as well as having developed (as a team) a brand new strategic plan for your school governing body (or Board, in the case of a MAT, for which we offer a specially-customised version).
· The RIGHT Programme (3 hours)
A three-hour discussion-based workshop aimed at individual chairs of governors, or small groups of chairs of governors (and also aspiring chairs). This isn't a list of things for chairs to do – there are many courses which do that. Instead, this is a much deeper, more foundational workshop, which addresses not the 'what' but the 'why' and the 'how' of chairing a governing body.
Fully endorsed by England's largest diocese (the Diocese of Oxford, with nearly 300 schools), and forming the basis of their programme for chairs of school governing bodies, this workshop is a transformative experience for chairs of governors who want to get beyond an endless list of things to do, and towards a much more strategic way of approaching them.
· Other workshops
Question Mark is highly experienced in creating workshops - including using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology - to meet the specific needs of school governing bodies, MATs and other groups.
