Webinar Content

Becoming an Academy is substantially more than getting the legal framework and documentation right. One of the biggest changes is to ensure that you have the resources to deal with funding coming directly to the school and that you can fulfil the reporting and other compliance issues. You may be taking more direct responsibility for staff and their pensions. You will have some responsibility for the school site and buildings. You may require temporary management resources to achieve the transition.

Our panel will be able to provide you with advice on all the above and much more.

This is an interactive webinar so please do provide us with your email questions before and during the broadcast.
