Developing businesses through Public Sector Commissioning

**Latest tender opportunities**

The Chairs’ Leadership Programme (CLP) (Lot 1) is a leadership development programme commissioned by the ETF, sponsored by the DfE. The CLP aims to develop the capacity of the Chairs of governing bodies of Further Education (FE) institutions by encouraging them to re-think their leadership roles, to become more deliberative and strategic in their roles and to create a community of practice through which they can mutually support each other to strengthen capacity across the FE sector.

Governance Professionals’ Leadership Programme (Lot 2) aims to develop the Governance Professional. The Governance Professional (Clerk to the Board) has a critical role to play in meeting the administrative and procedural requirements of Boards as well as being the trusted advisor to the Board – enabling efficient, effective discussion and decision making. They provide expert advice on governance, procedures, boardroom dynamics, and compliance, and are expected to act as the guardians of integrity. The FE Commissioner recognises that professional quality clerking is critical to the effectiveness of a governing board in fulfilling its core strategic functions.
