Although the Government no longer intends to introduce blanket legislation forcing all schools to convert to Academy status it is still committed to its Academy programme.
There are a series of steps which must be taken to ensure your school makes a smooth transition to an Academy as outlined on the Department for Education website at www.gov.uk and a number of HR issues connected to Academy conversion which we can help with e.g.
- ISupporting your consultation process
- Developing a TUPE project plan
- Overseeing the TUPE transfer process
- Developing new policies, procedures and contracts of employment
We also have a factsheet available – The HR implications of converting to an Academy which you may want to access in AskHR if you are an existing HR Advisory services client. If you are not currently a HR Advisory client please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
