Governors can make their Confirmations and add any Declarations of Interest on their Profile page

(*Important* Do note, these cannot be made directly on the 'Confirmations' or 'Declarations' tabs that you'll find in a Governing Board area - these are for viewing and administrating only)

Start by clicking on your name at the top-right of the screen

Then click on the Profile option

This takes you to your personal Profile page, where you can add or change your declarations of interest and confirmations by clicking on Declarations and Confirmations

Entering a new declaration

Click on the arrow to see your current declarations of interest

Nothing to declare?

If you have no conflicts of interest, you still need to confirm that you have 'nothing to declare' so your board can evidence compliance

Make sure there are no details recorded in the interests section and select ‘I have no interests to declare’ on the left hand side of the screen

This will then show that you have confirmed you have nothing to declare and when you did so

Something to declare?

Select ‘Add Interest’ from the right hand side of the screen

Complete the fields as required and then select ‘Add’. Make sure all details recorded are accurate

If you need to add more than one declaration, just click ‘Add interest’ (the previous step) again

When all your declarations have been added you still need to confirm and submit them so that your clerk can view and download the details

This will then show that you have confirmed your interests and when you did so

Re-confirming previous declarations

You are likely to be asked by your clerk to re-confirm your declarations of interest each year at the beginning of term

In your declarations and confirmations area, click on the arrow to see your current status declarations of interest

Reset the confirmation by clicking the blue 'clear'

Then re-confirm by clicking confirm and submit your declarations

Please note that any previous confirmation date recorded on the system, will be overwritten by the new date when you press the Confirm button

Viewing board declarations

You can view all declarations of interest for your board in a Declarations tab in the Governing Board area

Downloading Declarations

You can download a copy of your personal declarations in the declarations and confirmations tab in your Profile area

To download declarations for all members of your board, go to the 'About' tab in your governing board area and then to 'Downloads'

Scroll down until you reach the downloads for 'Declarations of interest'
