A director of an academy trust is subject to many duties and responsibilities, under company law, charity law and education law as well as a raft of good governance guidance. As a volunteer it is often hard for academy directors to keep up with the many duties and responsibilities imposed by corporate governance rules and legislation – which is where this course can help.

Why attend?

The corporate side of the role of academy trust director is often a new area of law for people to get to grips with. This course, delivered by a corporate governance expert from our corporate legal team, and an education expert from our education team will help you:

  • clearly understand the role, duties and responsibilities imposed on directors under company law
  • manage potential risks if directors fail to meet those standards
  • reduce the chances of future financial and personal penalties This course will also help academy trusts and their boards demonstrate that they have taken positive steps to make sure their directors have been properly trained and fully understand the role under company legislation.

Added value

The course will also include a Q&A section to deal with any practical queries you or your trust may have.

Who should attend?

This course is essential for existing directors who want to understand better the full extent of their duties or for Chairs or clerks who want to further develop their knowledge of the area. It is also ideal for anyone who is considering becoming a director in future or is new to the academy trust structure.
