AISWA is proud to present the online AICD Governance Foundations course for Not-For-Profit Directors of Independent Schools. This 1.5-day online course is open exclusively to Governing Board Members and Principals of AISWA schools and is being run in partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), a leading provider of governance education and development programs. The course has been tailored to the unique governance needs of Independent schools, providing participants with practical and relevant knowledge they can apply to their roles as directors.

This comprehensive online program consists of three distinct half-day modules delivered over 1.5 days:

  • Duties and Responsibilities of the Not-for-Profit Director
  • Strategy and Risk for the Not-for-Profit Director
  • Finance for the Not-for-Profit Director

Learning outcomes include:

  • Examine the duties and responsibilities of directors.
  • Outline the role of the regulatory authorities.
  • Compare the role of directors in NFP organisations with the role of directors in the commercial sector.
  • Explain the role of the board in developing strategy.
  • Establish the link between strategy and risk management, risk culture, and effective leadership.
  • Explain the major elements of the financial statements and the linkages between the financial statements.
  • Identify a director’s duties with regard to an organisation’s financial statements and financial reports.
  • Discuss the board’s role in improving financial performance.

Participants will receive the standard AICD Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors program notes. Attendees should note that this course has been tailored to address the specific needs of school governing board members through its facilitation, education-specific scenarios and school financial case study.

AICD has the largest director membership in the world, comprised of leaders from not-for-profit, private and public sectors in Australia and across the globe. Course attendees will be offered membership of the AICD for an additional fee. AICD membership provides exclusive benefits and an opportunity for participants to take their career further with: dedicated learning pathways; networking services; and the ability to stay current on the duties and responsibilities of a director.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for Board Members of AISWA schools to enhance their governance skills and knowledge. Don't miss out on this chance to learn from the best in the industry and take your governance skills to the next level.
