Revisions have been made to the Scheme of Delegation to clarify the Directors’ power of delegation and obligations, the position regarding consents for building works and the appointment and management of staff. Existing Academy Trusts should adopt the revised Scheme of Delegation as soon as possible. The document is available together with a guidance note on the procedure for adoption from Neil Weightman, 01332 293833 x 211, neil.weightman@nottingham-des.org.uk
