Event description


In a single Academy trust, the Accounting Officer must either be the Senior Executive Leader or Principal and the role of the Accounting Officer in an Academy Trust is pivotal to the medium-term success of the Academy. A number of legal responsibilities are placed upon the Accounting Officer to make sure all checks and balances are in place and financial reporting arrangements robust. This programme takes delegates through the various responsibilities assigned to Members, Trustees, Accounting Officer and Chief Finance Officer or Business Manager. It will provide practical tips and techniques to help Accounting Officers exercise their responsibilities and maintain controls. Delegates will leave the programme with an awareness that will enable them to examine their own controls and discuss changed arrangements to improve those on return to the workplace.

At the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • Understand the constitutional status they work with in their school as a single academy or part of a multi academy trust.
  • Evaluate their own organisational structures in relation to adequacy of controls.
  • Consider the basic financial checks and balances they have in place with a view to preventing fraud.
  • Compare their own financial reporting arrangements with models explored during the day and discuss appropriateness with leadership team and Trustee.
