Find your vision and strategy part 2: how to run an away day
Many boards take a day together in the summer term to reflect on their school’s vision and strategy. Read our facilitator’s guide on how to organise and run one for your board, both in-person or in a virtual space.
Viv Grant, Steve Baber and one of our associate education experts, Vicky Crane, helped us with this article.
If you haven't already, read part 1 of this series about laying the groundwork to help your board find a vision. You'll need that information to kick-start part 2.
