Understanding the changing role of company secretary for academy trusts

09 May 2024
ON24 webinar

With significant changes in company law and the DfE requirements recently, as well as upcoming changes in the regulatory landscape it’s more important than ever to gain a good understanding of the changing role of company secretary for academy trusts.

This webinar is free to attend and will help you gain a good understanding of the day-to-day role of the company secretary and those who work in corporate governance support in academy trusts. 

What we’ll cover:

  • Your academy trust and Company Law
  • Company secretarial requirements and duties
  • Principles of good governance
  • Companies House Compliance
  • The changing legislative and regulatory landscape

Who should attend?

The session is open to all and will be particularly useful if you work at the company secretary for an academy trust or in a supporting or related governance role.

Come along and find out more if you are:

  • Keen to find out what the new legislative changes mean for your trust.
  • New to company secretarial duties or supporting the company secretary. 
  • Newly appointed to a role in trust governance and keen to gain support and clarification. 
  • Looking for a refresh and to keep up to date in your role supporting trust governance.

Why should you attend?

The aim is to send you away with confidence in the understanding of your duties and responsibilities and how to carry out the tasks assigned to you to ensure legal and regulatory compliance

New academy trusts are formed all the time and there are an increasing number of people taking on these types of roles having little to no experience in company secretarial roles or their duties and many not fully understanding what’s expected of them. 

We want to dispel some myths and give some support in a quite niche area where corporate and education law combine – that is where our expertise and team come in.
