An Overview of the Organisation and Management Structure of Naace

Naace has two legal statuses:

Charitable status

As defined by the Charity Commission, Naace is ‘An organisation set up exclusively for charitable purposes which carries out activities to achieve the advancement of education.’

Trading Status

Naace is not simply a charity. It also carries out commercial activities which are not covered by its charitable status, these are delivered by the subsidiary undertaking Naace Trading Ltd. The responsibilities for fulfilling obligations as a registered charity fall on the Naace Board of Management. Members of the Board are trustees as defined by the Charity Legislation. The Board appoints the Directors of Naace Trading, which is usually the Chair and one or more members of the Board. Naace carries out all of its commercial duties within the specifications set out in the Articles and Memorandum of Association. The Chair of the Board of Management holds responsibility to ensure that the work of Naace falls within the remit contained within these documents. Members of the Board of Management are elected by a vote of the membership conducted by online ballot. All elections are conducted according to a 'first past the post' system as defined by the Electoral Reform Society. The Chair of the Board of Management is elected by the membership and takes office in their third year. Induction and training for all Trustees takes place at the annual induction event. At this event, full information packs containing details of strategic priorities, structures, policies, procedures, regulations, and code of practice are distributed for future reference.
