Governance, Risk management and Compliance is becoming ever more complex for Academy and School leadership teams and the time taken to manage these issues is ever increasing. There is a growing demand to demonstrate the activity and effort undertaken. Add to this to the routine risk and hazard management a school must conduct on a daily basis and the need for effective systems becomes obvious. Good Governance and Compliance are logical outcomes of effective Risk Management
CalQRisk Education enables the effective management of risk across the organisation. Based on the principles of ISO31000 risk management standard, it brings clarity, consistency and certainty to the effort.
CalQRisk Education addresses the risk concerns which the Academy or School leadership has to manage on a continuing basis and the detail of keeping the school community safe. Whether the risks lie in failure of the admissions process, shortfall in funding, safeguarding of pupils or staff motivation, CalQRisk Education presents them for assessment and manages issues identified in the assessment process through to completion.
CalQRisk helps Academies and Schools to identify the risks, treat those that need treatment and monitor the effectiveness of the controls in place to minimise the risks to the whole school community. Risk Management is everybody’s responsibility, the reputation of the Academy or School is dependent on all the functions, facilities and people associated with them, working together to provide the best educational outcomes possible.
Risk Treatment is supported by the Action Manager module through which tasks are assigned to individuals, given a priority and due-date. The Action Manager module facilitates the management of tasks to completion and includes reminder / overdue notifications and escalation of uncompleted tasks. Completed tasks can be reflected in the Risk Assessment and the revised residual risk calculation is immediately updated. Risk Registers always show the most current position with regard to risk.
Monitoring and Review of risks is supported with a suite of Risk and Task reports which provide a comprehensive view of the current status, actions completed and actions in progress to address risk. User-definable Risk Dashboards ensure that relevant, current information is available to users in a meaningful format.
