Event description

These termly sessions aim to provide an opportunity for clerks to share good practice as part of a networking opportunity. Each session will have a structured format focusing on best principles and practice. There will also be an opportunity to hear about key local and national changes/issues (hot topics) and an update on ELP .

This session will explore and provide guidance on effective minute taking skills with the  aim of increasing your confidence, not just for any Ofsted scrutiny of your minutes, but as part of your professional development as a Clerk and will include:
Your Role in Meetings: clarify the roles of the Chair and the Clerk to ensure that you really understand the responsibilities that come with your role.
Your Meeting Behaviour: This section highlights poor minute taking procedures and bad practice so you can see how not to do it, as well as identifying the best practice approach so you can integrate these into your ways of working.
Agenda and writing minutes: Creating an agenda and identifying a variety of styles for writing minutes, including formatting to comply with accessibility requirements
Minute Taking Practice: The practical exercises will help you to develop an effective minute taking style, and possibly adopt more modern ways of working, such as taking minutes straight onto a laptop/tablet. There will also be a chance to share your practices, ideas and sample minutes with other clerks.
