The Board of Governors of a VG school is the employing authority, and, as such, is responsible for the employment of all staff (both teaching and non-teaching) in its school.
The transfer of the funding authority responsibility for all Voluntary Grammar Schools transferred from the Department of Education to the Education Authority from 1 April 2017. The transfer will involve the following administrative arrangements of the VG Schools Funding Authority function;
- Funding authority for VG schools;
- Financial monitoring for VG schools;
- VG schools VAT claims processing; and
- Management of VG schools redundancy programmes.
The transfer will not involve any potential policy changes. The responsibility for the Common Funding Scheme will remain with the Department.
