Academy Conversion HR Support

Keep focus on the children, teaching and learning.

With experience in over 200 successful conversions we will keep your staff focussed on teaching and learning through these changes.

The transfer of employer status from a local authority (LA) maintained school to the Academy Trust comes with a long list of responsibilities. We will help you address staff concerns around job security and anxiety over conditions of service, and make sure all that the right policies and procedures are put in place from the start.

Whether managing TUPE and the transfer of staff, to creating the framework for employee engagement, our experienced HR consultants will guide you every step of the way.

All services received have been nothing less than excellent, efficient and professional. The systems and processes are straight forward and hassle free. Our requests for advice, whether via the telephone service or the HR Consultant, are dealt with promptly and responses have always been swift and well thought through.
