Academies: Useful Links

Department for Education

The Department for Education (DfE) is responsible for Education and Children’s services.

Documents identified by the Regional Schools Commissioner Office as useful to academy governors/trustees:

The Confederation of Schools Trusts

The Confederation of School Trusts (CST) is the national organisation and sector body for school trusts in England advocating for, connecting and supporting executive and governance leaders.

We are a membership organisation of organisations. This means that the organisation – the Trust – is the member.

The Schools Network

The Schools Network provides a range of training programmes for academy and school governors.

Specific programmes are available for governors of recently converted academies to ensure all governors are fully up-to-date with their new roles and responsibilities and chairs of academy governing bodies can join a free network to receive academy specific updates. More than 60% of sponsored academies have taken part in our programme to date. For further details see Governors and Academies.
