The Academie is directed by the director and the three Heads of Department, who meet in the presence of the Education Manager, the Student Adviser and Faculty Manager. There are no tutors with a permanent appointment at the Academy. The Heads of Department are also appointed for a limited period. This is to ensure an ongoing fresh scrutiny of the structure and content of the course in the light of developments in theory and practice in the three disciplines.
