The application deadline for this funding has passed.
Forms for alternative provision grants, covering both building capacity and conversion support.
All academies approved for opening by the Secretary of State are charitable companies (the academy trusts) governed by their articles of association. They also enter into a contract – the funding agreement – with the Secretary of State.
The building capacity grant will help fund the post of a business manager, accountant or similar services for a period of up until March 2015.
The conversion support grant may be used only for:
- obtaining legal and financial advice in respect of the conversion process
- the costs of software licence transfers
- HR/TUPE advice
- Rebranding costs
- expenses incurred in setting up of the academy trust
Completed forms should be returned to the DfE contact/project lead. They should be paid within one month of the form(s) being submitted.
