There are few aspects of running an Academy that don’t have some sort of compliance issue, and human resources is no exception. In days gone by, schools had resources allocated to making sure that their compliance obligations were met, but with streamlining and cuts, the luxury of a dedicated HR department is well outside the reach of most Academies. Irrespective of the restrictions this brings, you’re still obliged to stay up to date with the ever-changing legislation and your constantly evolving obligations towards your staff.
Due to the nature of Academies, for example where you have a combination of different types of employee, staffing issues can be even more complex than in some other businesses. This can make HR a real challenge when you’re running an Academy. It is for this reason that more and more Academies are choosing to outsource their HR responsibilities, so they can get on with the more important aspects of running their school.
