Webinar Duration: 47 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide academy trustees, local governors, chairs, committee members, financial officers and governance professionals with an in-depth review of the 2021 edition of the Academy Trust Handbook (also known as the Academies Financial Handbook), due to come into effect on 1 September 2021.
On 16 June 2021 the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) published the Academy Trust Handbook 2021. The handbook, which has been re-named to accurately reflect trusts’ existing responsibilities in a wider range of areas, aims to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for trustees, local governors and leaders of trusts to understand their legal and regulatory requirements.
In this webinar, Graham Fitzgerald will provide an expert analysis of the key updates to the new guidance, running through the latest changes to the trusts’ existing obligations, highlighting new responsibilities and delivering a comprehensive overview of what this means for those involved in governance.
