Free school training: Planning for Pre-Opening

This event has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances, please do not try to book a place. 

BWB’s schools team invites you to an evening to discuss your pre-opening year.

We hope that you will shortly receive good news from the DfE that you have been approved to open a free school. The next step will be to think about your pre-opening year. This timely event will address the first issues and challenges that you are likely to face.

Topics for the evening are:

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

Why choose this course?

We will also have representatives from recently opened free schools and those currently in their pre-opening year who will be on hand to provide their comments on the big challenges.

At the end of the evening there will be chance for informal networking with refreshments.
