Designed in collaboration with its Consultant Professor Ron Hill, Stone King’s governance reviews are focussed on supporting Boards and Governance Professionals to optimise the impact of good governance, helping colleges to be at their strongest for the benefit of students and the communities they serve.
Stone King’s methodology for external board reviews is developmental and supportive, recognising and recording highly effective practice for the Board and in-house Governance Professional to perpetuate and highlighting areas which would benefit from further development. Gathering evidence and encouraging participation through a combination of observation, interviews, group sessions, surveys and document review, one of the outputs is a formal written report from Stone King, with recommendations and ranked priorities, presented in a group session to the Board. The reviews are delivered by Stone King’s experienced governance professional consultants, backed by its expert education lawyers and overseen by Partner and national Head of FE Tom Morrison.
Stone King has a dedicated and talented 80-strong Education Team, passionate about supporting the mission of colleges.
