Advanced Workshops for Free Schools

Whether congratulations are in order or you are anxiously awaiting your decision from the DfE, we would like to invite you to an evening of free training covering some of the key issues you are likely to encounter in the pre-opening phase.

Dates & Times

September 15, 2014 @ 12:00 am

The workshops will be led by education-specialist solicitors from Bates Wells Braithwaite, in addition to project management experts and Emma Hanson from Baker Tilly who will lead the finance session. There will be an opportunity to ask general questions about school and company matters throughout the evening and to meet representatives from open free schools. The workshops will cover:

a) Employment
b) Procurement and contracting
c) Finance
d) Project management
e) Governance matters and multi academy trusts

Once you have registered, we will contact you by email to determine which workshop you are particularly interested in.
