Local authorities and Education - the New World

Regional seminars for local authorities on how to respond best to the challenges, and how they can operate in the new world, delivered by John Freeman CBE and LSN.

The policies of the Coalition Government and the pressures of the spending review pose unprecedented challenges for local authorities as they develop their education role.

The Secretary of State says that local authorities have a key strategic role with all providers; while increased autonomy for schools and colleges reduces direct local authority influence. Squaring this circle is the challenge for local authorities!

LSN, the not-for-profit education specialist, together with John Freeman CBE warmly invite you to attend one of our regional seminars that focus on how local authorities can respond best to the challenges, and how they can operate in the new world.

Why attend?

  • Hear the latest information on the spending cuts with analysis from John Freeman CBE
  • Explore what the functional changes of local authorities will mean to your organisation
  • Find out how local authorities can re-engineer themselves to meet their new requirements
  • Get expert advice, discuss your experiences and your plans with colleagues

Who should attend?

Directors of Childrens Services, Assistant Directors responsible for commissioning, and 14-19 senior managers.
