Academies online resource

4 March 2013

This resource is designed to give school leaders key information on achieving academy status and working in academy groups.

Last year we commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out a survey and this survey revealed that many schools were interested in supporting or working with other schools under the academy programme - but they felt they lacked sufficient information.

Following on from this, we were commissioned by the National College to contribute to the legal structure aspects of a new online resource designed to give headteachers and governors access to helpful information, case studies and resources on academy status.

This resource, which can be accessed via the link below, will hopefully support greater understanding of the implications of academy status and academy groups
