Is anyone interested in starting a discussion forum for HR managers or business managers in schools and academies? 

  • Would this be open to HR admin in schools also, as I would be very interested.

    In my spare time I am a Director of a MAT and also Chair a Governing Body so would be interested to see how this develops.

    I am part of the faculty designing and delivering MBA's in International HR (Generalist), Internationa HR with Compensation & Benefits Speciality and international HR with International Mobility Speciality in a business school in France.

    I also sit on the Steering Committee of the Executive Remuneration Research Centre at Vlerick Business School in Belgium where we have a number of PhD holders and current researchers in this specialist area

    Would be interested to see where this goes and am happy to participate ......
  • Would be interesting to hear how other Schools/Academies are implementing the National Living Wage next year, especially if they offer a Pay band and point system.

    This is an area that I will be interested in. I used to be a school Governor in an infant school and found it limiting that all HR advice and decisions were taken centrally by the Local Authority HR Team.
    Now the school is within an Academy Trust and I am a governor in the Junior school that is a part of the Trust so hoping that there will be more opportunity to input and provide support from my HR experience.

    So definitely, I believe being exposed to ideas from colleagues in similar settings will be great.
  • Hi there

    I would be interested if you were to set this up. I currently work within HR for schools and academies.
    Look forward to hearing from you

    Now we have the new community (platform)... let me look into how we might make this happen.

    As a school governor, I'd be interested in a specialist discussion forum too.

    That would be great Steve; am still learning this new platform, but would think members will really appreciate the chance to network with other in similar settings.

    Happy to kick it off when you can help us to get it going - lots going on at the moment - its the time of year when there is lots of turnover ready for the august leave date! you help is much appreciated.
