Event description


Whilst the Government has stepped back from the recent White Paper proposal to make all school academies, and there is no imminent rush to convert, the old adage “fail to prepare and prepare to fail” springs to mind.

Relevant to anyone in a decision making role in any type of school, this course will provide delegates with impartial and factual insights into the way academies are constituted and how this will affect school leadership and governance.

Objectives of this course

  • have a balanced and impartial awareness of the key features of academy status
  • understand how academy status differs from arrangements for schools operating within a local authority framework
  • understand key phases in the conversion process
  • use a business focused process to assess the readiness of the leadership and governance team to face the challenges of academy status
  • use a framework to evaluate the suitability of other prospective school "partners" who may wish to academise together
  • be able to access further information and support
  • return to school able to formulate their response to the government's aim for all schools to convert in the next six years

Facilitator: Larraine Cooper
