Attend our free ‘Academies Conference 2017’, an event we are organising in association with Birkett Long and Lloyds Bank.

You will have the opportunity to tap into the experience of experts, enabling you to gain useful insight into employment law, governance and managing the requirements of a growing MAT from both legal and financial perspectives. 

In addition, the final session will be with an established and growing MAT, who will share their experiences, what they’ve learned and some practical advice to apply to situations as they arise followed by a Q&A with our specialists.
