Returning December 2019

The Academies Finance Conference 2019 will provide leading professional development in assessing how all academies can deliver outstanding financial management, effective budgeting and maximise efficiency savings.



An excellent and varied event tailored to any finance or business professional of an Academy Trust.

Trust Development Director, The Futures Trust

One of the most useful academy finance events I have attended with a range of excellent contributors happy to share their experience.

Principal Finance Officer, London Borough Of Havering

A "must-go" event for every Academy Accounting Officer and chair of academy trust.

Capital Infrastructure Manager, Department for Education

A good and balanced range of relevant presentations in an excellent and conveniently located venue.

Chair of Strategic Board, Chipstead Valley Academy Trust

An excellent event, would recommend any Finance Directors, Finance Managers within MAT's to attend future events.

Financial Officer, Glebe Academy

The event was an excellent opportunity to not only hear the latest DfE (ESFA) policy but, importantly, an opportunity to hear from colleagues in other Trusts about their experiences and approaches.
