The government has now set out a vision in the recent Schools Whitepaper that all schools “will be part of strong trusts by 2030”, either part of one or in the process of joining.
“The MAT Growth Conference”, in partnership with the newly formed Multi Academy Trust Association, will be supporting trusts through this journey by delivering an agenda filled with guidance and best practice, answering the overarching question “how do we deliver sustainable growth?”.
The in-person conference will aim to provide MAT Leaders with tangible guidance, case-studies and address challenges on how to drive growth within your trust, with also a look ahead to how mergers will play a key part in the coming years.
Sessions delivered on the day will be topics around:
