As time goes on, more and more schools are considering what transferring to academy status means. If you are beginning to consider this as an option for your school, this course is for you. You may also find it beneficial if you have recently joined an academy from a previous community school and want to understand the key points of difference between those two arrangements.
The smoothest transitions to academy status are best achieved through a full understanding of what a maintained school will be moving towards, what they can influence and control, and what they might look for in any prospective partners they might wish to work with in the future. This programme has consistently received excellent feedback for its unbiased delivery of critical facts and information. It will help you to understand academy constitutions, anticipate changes that may need greater consideration, and work towards preparing a framework for evaluating how you would want to move forward.
