understanding re-brokerage for academies webinar

10 October 2017

Re-brokering is the terminology the DfE use where they require the transfer of an academy to a new trust (as opposed to a voluntary transfer).

Increasingly, academy trusts are being required by their Regional Schools Commissioner to transfer one, or more of their academies to another academy trust as part of a re-brokerage arrangement, whilst other academy trusts are being asked to receive a re-brokered academy.

In this webinar, Hayley and Katie will explore re-brokerage arrangements including the Regional School Commissioners’ legal powers and the circumstances in which an academy may be at risk of being re-brokered, as well as the potential consequences of refusing to consent to such an arrangement. They will also look at this topic from the perspective of a trust being asked to accept a re-brokered academy and give an overview of the legal process that this entails.

This live webinar is designed to:

  • give you a greater understanding of re-brokerage arrangements and the associated legal powers
  • help you identify when an academy may be at risk of re-brokerage, and
  • create awareness of what steps to take should this become relevant to you, both in terms of transferring academies out of, or welcoming academies into, your trust.
