What's at stake?
Members play a critical stewardship role in state-funded education in England. They’re charged with upholding the integrity of governance within their trust/foundation, functioning as the last line of defence against ineffective — or failing — governance.
It’s a distinct, nuanced role. While not directly involved in day-to-day operational or strategic decision making, members remain key custodians of education. As such, they’re accorded with limited but significant powers enshrined within company law, as well as their trust's or foundation's articles of association.
However, the role of the member is often misunderstood. This ambiguity alone has the potential to undermine the integrity of an entire governance structure. It is absolutely critical, therefore, that members recognise their duties and possess the capability to decisively exercise their powers.
