BDO Update for HEI Governors
We are pleased to advise of our next update webinar for HEI governors, which will run on Thursday 18 May 2023.

Following the highly successful sessions over the last couple of years (attended by more than 400 governors from over 100 HEIs), we are running our next update for Board members, Clerks and members of VCE. This session sits alongside the ‘The Effective (HEI) Audit Committee’ session on Thursday 11 October 2022.

The size and shape of offer and establishments continues to move – and whether the consultation on minimum eligibility requirements and a new SNC, blended learning or International (to name just a few) - there are a lot of moving parts. Risk registers and financial forecasts are starting to become more dependable but what is the five year outlook. Cyber risks, property needs and pension costs all factor in; access to finance has become far more interesting and long term solutions are needed. With some movements in the Senior team at the OfS there is a determination to re-establish its regulatory roots and impact.

James Aston MBE, National Head of Education, will aim to articulate what good governance looks like, will bring together current issues Boards are looking at and give a perspective on the challenges and distinctive levers available to the OfS, the DfE and Ministers. Drawing on our sector experience, he will use real examples and current issues being addressed by Boards and VCEs to bring matters to life.

The delivery platform is now very familiar, and the format has roots in James’ Audit Committee and Board Away day sessions which have been running for over 18 years. This will be a 45 minute session of reality checking / horizon scanning and then a question and answer session for 15 minutes.
