Online training for academy trusts completing financial returns


Following on from last year’s online training on funding, the Education Funding Agency (EFA) is launching a series of online presentations and interactive webinars to support academy trusts in completing their financial returns and understanding the financial accountability and assurance framework.

This online approach allows academy trusts instant access to relevant information and training.

The public can register now for webinars on the March accounts return (15 May, 2pm) and the 2014 to 2015 budget forecast (9 June, 2pm). Narrated presentations on both these returns will be available to download by the end of April.

On 15 July, EFA will hold webinars aimed at all academy trusts (11am) and their auditors (2pm) on the academies financial framework, including the accounts direction and financial handbook. Registration for these webinars is now open.

A further webinar covering the annual accounts return will take place in the autumn.
