About the Evaluation of the Chairs Leadership Programme
NatCen is conducting an evaluation of the Chairs Leadership Programme, which is a programme delivered by the Oxford Said Business school. The programme aims to develop the capacity of the chairs of governing bodies of Further Education (FE) institutions.
As part of the evaluation, NatCen is keen to understand chairs’ experiences and views of the programme. The evaluation is funded by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF).
Why take part?
This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Chairs Leadership Programme. Your participation will help us to better understand the kind of support and development opportunities in which chairs are interested. In turn, you will help us to improve the relevance of the programme, and to ensure chairs receive the leadership development support they need in future.
Participants will be asked to complete two short online surveys, before and after participation in the Chairs Leadership Programme. Each survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and will include questions on your personal and professional background, and your experience of the Chairs Leadership Programme.
We will also be conducting telephone interviews with a small number of chairs to explore their experiences of the Chairs Leadership Programme in more depth. The interviews are voluntary, and the duration will be approximately one hour.
How will you deal with my personal information?
We will treat the information you give us in the strictest confidence under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 and GDPR. You can find out more about our credentials and who we are here and how we protect your personal information here.
Why have I been selected to take part?
The Chairs Leadership Programme is being delivered to multiple cohorts of chairs over a three-year period. The aim is that all chairs of governing bodies of Further Education boards in England will have the opportunity to take part in the Chairs Leadership Programme. All chairs who have participated in the programme are being asked to participate in the evaluation.
