Burnetts adds new seminars to the school timetable

Burnetts adds new seminars to the school timetable

Head teachers and business managers are being invited to attend two seminars being hosted by solicitors at Burnetts.

The latest school events’ programme, which runs in the Autumn term, includes sessions on school collaborations and a briefing on trade unions, from education law experts Natalie Ruane and John Noctor.

In the first seminar ‘School Collaborations – Examining the Pros and Cons’, John will examine the options for school collaborations and assess the pros and cons of each.  Alliances, federations, single, umbrella and multi academy trust models will be discussed.

The second seminar ‘Trade Unions – Their Rights and Your Duties’ will examine the rights of local and regional trade union representatives and the duties of head teachers and governors when working in situations involving unions.

Host Natalie said “The different ways in which schools might work together collaboratively and issues involving trade unions are two topics that crop up on a regular basis.  Through these seminars, I am hoping that schools will have a better understanding of the issues involved and feel better equipped to make decisions relating to their particular school.  Both sessions are aimed exclusively at head teachers and business managers”.

The briefings are taking place 4pm – 6pm in the north and south of the County at Burnetts’ first floor Cornmarket office in Penrith and Ford Park in Ulverston on the following dates:

School Collaborations – Examining the Pros and Cons

Monday 29th September (Penrith) and Wednesday 1st October (Ulverston)

Trade Unions – Their Rights and Your Duties

Monday 3rd November (Penrith) and Wednesday 5th November (Ulverston)

The sessions are free to attend and places can be reserved by ringing Suzanne Thompson on 01228 552222 or by email to events@burnetts.co.uk.  Due to limited places, booking is essential.  Further information on the content of the sessions can be found at www.burnetts.co.uk/events
