Independent Review Panel Training

Course description: This course covers the duties of Independent review Panel (IRP) members and Clerks as outlined in the DfE Suspensions and Exclusions Guidance. It will take participants through the process, step by step with a model agenda and guidance documents, to ensure legal compliance. After completing the course, panel members and clerks will be familiar with the exclusions process and be more confident in meeting their statutory duties. This course is arranged in four sections which cover:

  1. Context and general overview
  2. The school decision to exclude - lawful, reasonable and fair
  3. Fairness and equality legislation
  4. IRP roles and the decision-making process.
Duration: 2.5 hrs
Outcomes: The training is comprehensive and interactive and by the end we expect the attendees to feel confident when it comes to making and reviewing suspension and exclusion decisions and in attending an IRP. Following the training, governors/trustees will also be able to sit on an IRP (for another academy/school) should they so wish.
Facilitation: This training course can be delivered in person or remotely, distances of over 30miles for in person delivery incur an additional travel allowance
Cost: £300 plus VAT
