In the HR Service within Dorset County Council we care greatly about the services we provide to our school and academy customers. We are holding a small number of roadshow events around the county to provide you with an opportunity to find out what we offer, how we are looking to further develop our services and also provide an overview of a number of key issues affecting schools during 2017.
The roadshow sessions are aimed at School Leaders and Governors and are designed to provide an opportunity for you to talk to us about the services we offer and for you to provide feedback on the quality of services you currently access from us to help us ensure that our services continue to meet your needs.
In addition we are also providing bite-sized presentations on three key people management issues; how to respond to the Fluency Duty, changes to the payment of off-payroll workers and understanding and managing stress.
The format of the event can be found via the Dorset Nexus page and on the attached document together with a facility for you to register your interest - http://www.dorsetnexus.org.uk/Event/47235
