Event Summary

With the recent Academies Commission report suggesting collaboration is vital for school improvement, Capita’s Academies Conference is timed to provide you with guidance on implementing the next stage of the academies programme, by developing effective models of collaboration.

You will hear, from the Academies Commission and the Department for Education, about increasing collaboration through sharing expertise and achieving economies of scale.

Designed for academies and schools looking to convert, this conference examines the range of collaborative structures available for schools, academies and free schools, including multi-academy trusts, umbrella trusts, co-operatives and collaborative partnerships.

As the Commission proposes Ofsted should only judge a school to be ‘outstanding’ for leadership if it can provide evidence of its contribution to system-wide improvement, we will spotlight how to achieve increased school-to-school collaboration and secure improved pupil outcomes, value for money and continuous professional development.
