The academies agenda is here to stay and most schools’ governing bodies will consider whether they should become an academy. Some schools may find themselves propelled along the route due to floor standard issues. No matter what the reason, this is a comprehensive and practical awareness programme that presents you with a unique impartiality, the pros, cons and consequences of moving towards academy status. This highly regarded course will help you to understand the key issues around constitution, governance and finance as well as the implications for management.
