Our people include some of the region’s top experts.
Our Academy Group was established to ensure that our many academy clients are serviced effectively and that resources allocated to the Group are co-ordinated efficiently. Our concentrated strength and the investment in this Group by the partners, reflects our commitment to this sector where there are regularly changing regulations which demand specialist knowledge and a pro-active approach.
Our academy team has grown to become one of the largest in the country with 8 academy partners supported by over 80 specialist academy staff. As auditors of academies, nationally we are in the top 3. Every member of the academy team spends 25% – 50% of their time working with academy clients but also work with other charity and education clients and business organisations. This ensures that they provide advice that is technically excellent and commercially astute.
The partners in charge of the Academy Group are at the forefront of the sector. They regularly convey their academy sector expertise through presenting at seminars for the ICAEW, other training organisations and with the Education Funding Agency (EFA). They are well networked and each partner advises at least 20 academies.
Our Academy Group team members are kept up to date technically with regular newsletters, briefings, courses and seminars. Meetings are also held where Group members from all our offices attend and share experiences on many academy sector issues.
