Training will commence in term 1 and is available through to the end of term 4 via face to face or virtual (live) sessions.
School councils play an important role in the governance of our state schools. DE provides no cost ISG training to all Victorian state school council members to help them in their role.
As DE’s ISG training partner, Synergistiq delivers face to face and virtual (live) sessions designed to support the knowledge, understanding and skills of school council members and provide guidance on improving governance.
To find out more about ISG please visit DE’s Policy and Advisory Library (PAL) School Council Training and Good Governance page which contains useful information and induction videos as well as links to the ISG modules. Information about the School Council Self Assessment Tool (SCSAT) can also be found on the page. The SCSAT provides support to council members in evaluating their effectiveness as a collective and identifying areas for improvement. It is designed to be used by the council as a group to discuss and review self-assessment statements. Principals can access an online version on the School Council Portal (principal or business manager login required).
