Berry Education is a consulting service offering support to leadership teams and those responsible for governance in the education sector.
The requirements on schools, academies and multi-academy trusts to operate as corporate businesses as well as academic institutions is ever increasing meaning the pressures on leaders to ensure compliance and best practice is a growing one.
Those with strategic oversight need to continually up-skill their understanding to ensure they are able to be effective in their voluntary role of strategic leadership.
Berry Education provides a holistic consultancy service in the areas of educational leadership, governance and business management offering support options ranging from advice, guidance, coaching and mentoring to hands on reviews, audits and a diverse range of training and development options.
It is pertinent that all those responsible for governance understand their roles and can reflect on and share their best practices and understand where and when developments are necessary.
