The ULT board of trustees is accountable in law for all major decisions relating to its academies. However, this does not mean that the board is required to carry out all the trust’s governance functions and decision-making responsibilities. Many are delegated to the chief executive officer (CEO), the board’s committees, and to local governing boards.
A clear scheme of delegation defines lines of responsibility and accountability within the ULT.
