Local Authorities Role in Education Local Authorities Role in Education

Capita’s National Shaping the Local Authority’s Role in Education Conference, taking place in London on 26th February 2013, provides you with an essential forum to understand and redesign the future of education leadership, management and accountability, faced with an increasing number of academies and Free Schools operating outside local council control.

Recent research reports commissioned by SOLACE, ADCS and LGA on this theme identify the need to maintain a level of educational support.

It is essential for stakeholders to seize the opportunity to shape this and learn from new and emerging local solutions. This is the perfect opportunity for local authorities, central government and agencies, academies and maintained  schools to decide how this new ‘middle tier’ should function and how best to meet the statutory duty to deliver educational excellence.

Informative sessions and best practice draw on the following core themes:

• Driving school improvement and intervening in failing schools and academies
• Effective school place planning and managing admissions
• Commissioning high quality provision for vulnerable pupils including those with special educational needs and those who are excluded

With greater parental power, more demanding inspection frameworks and rising floor standards, don’t miss this opportunity to ensure you and your partners are able to keep pace, adapt and future proof your service models in an increasingly autonomous education landscape.
