Workshop 3:

From Vision to Implementation
Rabbi David Meyer, Executive Director of PaJeS

  Every governor has a vision and desire to improve their school. However, translating this vision into implementation is often a very frustrating process. This session will consider the strategic priorities governors have for schools, explore the challenges facing their implementation and how to best overcome these challenges.

The cost of the evening is £20 per person, with a capped fee of £80 for four or more people from one school.
