Academies: your employment rights

Whether your school is considering academy status, has already been given the go-ahead to convert, or is already an academy, ATL has advice on your rights and working conditions.

ATL supports all members, regardless of the status of their school. However, we continue to have concerns about the impact of the academies programme on the education system.

We believe any school considering converting should carefully consider the risks and go through a full consultation process with all stakeholders. We also believe no school should be forced to convert.

For more details of this aspect of our work on academies, see our academies campaign page.
