This module combines the practical and operational experience of an experienced trust CEO with advice and guidance from a leading academy solicitor.
The first part of the day will look at company law and its application to academy trusts, including looking at the statutory responsibilities of key roles including the Board of Directors, Chief Executive, Accounting Officer and Principal Finance officer.
As charities, an overview of relevant charity law will also be discussed before looking in more detail at education law, the application of education acts and the nature and structure of funding agreements.
The legal aspects of the conversion process (requirement for consultation).
This overview will also include specific issues related to health and safety, employment legislation, safeguarding and financial responsibility – although these will be developed in more detail in subsequent modules.
