THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will examine current issues and emerging challenges for independent schools in England - including policy developments, particularly relating to charitable status, and the future of student recruitment.
Delegates will discuss the impact of proposals affecting independent schools in the Education Green Paper - as well as the expected Government response - including the proposed new requirements for independent schools to maintain their charitable status through, for example:
- Setting up new free schools;
- Sponsoring academies;
- Supporting teaching in minority subjects which state schools struggle to make viable;
- Offering a proportion of school places as fully funded bursaries; or
- By providing greater access to facilities.
Further sessions consider next steps in developing more independent and state school partnerships and promoting greater collaboration.
The agenda also looks at latest developments in student recruitment from overseas, and the likely impact of potential changes to international student policy and Britain’s exit from the EU on independent schools and their marketing.
The conference takes place with the expected launch of a Government consultation on the migration of non EEA students later this year and as the Home Affairs Committee conducts an inquiry into effective immigration policy.
