May 12, 2014

The specialist education team from chartered accountants and business advisors, Whitley Stimpson, is hosting an Academy governance conference on 12 June 2014 at A Day in the Country near Banbury, Oxfordshire.

‘Academy Governance: The Future’, which is aimed at Academy Governors, Head Teachers and Business Managers, will provide attendees with an insightful journey through the current governance framework in Academies as well as what the future of Academy governance may hold.

“Whether you are an established Academy or in the process of converting, there’s no doubt the landscape of Academy governance and role of the Governor and Head Teacher is changing rapidly,” comments Andy Jones, Director, Whitley Stimpson.  “Our conference is designed to provide a practical guide to the current governance framework as well as providing a unique look at the emerging developments in Academy governance and the issues this may present.”

Delegates will have access to three noteworthy speakers:

  • Whitley Stimpson’s Head of Education Services, Martin Wyatt, will outline the current governance framework with: “Where are we now?”
  • Gerard Kelly, former editor of TES, will highlight what the future of Academy governance may hold and how you can prepare for this with: “Where are we going?”
  • Matthew Wolton, Head of Academies at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, will detail some of the key legal issues in Academy governance with: “Don’t go there”
