Our Governance

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: GSE Offer

GSE Heads of Science and Engineering Profession (HoSEP) agreed new governance arrangements in February 2022 to improve the strategic oversight and delivery of the GSE Profession Strategy.

The proposed changes were developed from a wide-ranged consultation with GSE Shadow Board, GSE members, members of GSE working groups, those working in HoSEP support teams, and HoSEPs themselves. We hope these changes will ensure:

  • effective decision making,
  • efficient delivery,
  • more inclusive routes for members to contribute,
  • stronger partnerships with Heads of Science & Engineering Profession support teams (who are based in each organisation), and
  • smooth communication.

Some of the upcoming key changes include:

  • splitting out decision making into delivery and strategic elements. This means the GSEP Board will become two separate Boards: the GSEP Project Board and the GSEP Strategic Board.
  • A new route for all GSE members to suggest new projects that you think we should be addressing. We will provide a project proposal template for all members which will then be taken to the new GSEP Project Board for approval.
  • A monthly GSEP Community of practice meeting which members can attend. Here, you will hear what is being discussed at GSE Boards, about new products, and how you can get more involved in the Profession. Joining details for this meeting are released each month in the GSE newsletter.

We are currently working with departments and organisations to implement these changes and will be providing members with a full governance pack including terms of references for all stakeholder groups in June.
