Post Conversion Academy Process in the Education Sector

It is important for academies to know they will have a legal team who will continue to work alongside them post conversion. This is particularly critical in the early stages immediately post-conversion, when the governors are becoming accustomed to the additional responsibilities they have taken on.

Lanyon Bowdler specialise in continuing to work with clients post-conversion, hand holding them through their first years as academies. We offer a fixed fee, fully comprehensive employment & HR support service called Education HR Plus which provides you with all the employment law advice and assistance you require during the course of the year.

This service includes advice and assistance in relation to the following:

  • the preparation of new contracts and new starter letters
  • any changes and developments in employment law
  • disciplinary and grievance processes, procedures and meetings

Whilst our employment law support service is comprehensive, it does not extend to advice and assistance in relation to Employment Tribunal proceedings (or civil Court proceedings) brought by employees or former employees, and for that reason we offer access to our AXA provided Employer legal expenses insurance cover. In addition to employment law and HR advice, the other members of the team remain on hand to continue to advise on property and corporate matters as required.
