The growing trend in the delivery of education through multi academy trusts will come under the spotlight at a seminar hosted by Langleys Solicitors and BHP Chartered Accountants.
Chancellor George Osborne announced in his Budget statement proposals for all primary and secondary schools to become academies by 2020.
Langleys and BHP are specialists in the field of education and the seminar will assist senior leadership teams and governors to understand the implications of conversion to academy status from a legal and financial perspective.
Attendees will be given an understanding of the conversion process, the options and the pitfalls. There will also be an opportunity to hear from a senior leadership team of an academy which has recently grown to be a multi-academy trust.
The speakers include Kate Hindmarch and Mini Setty, partners in the employment law team at Langleys; Mike Jackson, partner at BHP; and Tim Priestley, an academy conversion specialist.
The seminar is free to attend and takes place on Thursday 28 April at FERA, Sand Hutton, York, 2pm-5pm.
