Agenda item

Work Programme

Report of the Director of Policy and Democratic Engagement































The Committee received the Committee’s Work Programme for consideration and discussion. The aim of the Work Programme is to show all known, substantive agenda items for forthcoming meetings of the Committee, to enable this Committee, other committees, officers, partners, and the public to plan their work with and for the Committee. Changes since the Committee’s last meeting, including any new items, had been made in consultation with the Co-Chairs, Deputy Chair and Group Spokesperson, via their regular pre-meetings, and these were set out at the beginning of Appendix A of the report. It was highlighted that the Committee had begun to consider items which would be included on agendas from March 2023 onwards.


Councillor Mair-Richards suggested that the References from Council or other Committees be added as an agenda item, rather than being included in section 2.0 of the Work Programme.


Councillor Turpin asked that the recommendations of the Race Equality Commission be added to the Work Programme. Councillor Haybe asked that Race as a wider issue be added to the Work Programme. He offered to create some wording.


Appraisal of Learn Sheffield to be added to the Work Programme, with a specific focus on what they are doing to address racial inequality.

Councillor Basharat asked that Home Tuition be added to the Work Programme.
