Academy experts to reveal the facts behind the headlines

Kate Hindmarch, Langleys SolicitorsEducation experts are to join forces for an event that provides insight on the conversion of schools to academies.

Controversial plans to force all state schools to become academies have been dropped by the government but schools within under-performing local authority areas must still convert.

Experts from Langleys Solicitors, Mazars and Tees Valley Education will provide advice to help leadership teams and governors to understand the implications of academy conversion from a legal and financial perspective.

The free-to-attend seminar takes place on 15 June at Mazars, The Rivergreen Centre, Durham, starting at 9.30am.

Attendees will be given an overview of the academy sector, the top 10 legal issues to consider and advice on the formation of Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) from an audit and finance perspective.

Speakers include Kate Hindmarch and Mini Setty, partners in the employment and education team at Langleys; Shaun Mullins, partner at Mazars; and Phil Curtis, finance director at Tees Valley Education. There will be an opportunity for guests to ask questions before the event concludes with a buffet lunch and networking.
