What difference will you make?

Three key challenges for the trust over the next 12-24 months are:

1.         Post Covid recovery

2.         Educational standards – turning schools rated ‘Good’ into ‘Outstanding’ schools.

3.         Financial management – ensuring budgets are maintained and forecasted to allow for a surplus of funds.

4.         Brand improvement – build and improve upon the reputation of the trust across all stakeholders.

5.         Governance – To contribute to the improvement of governance within the board as the trust works to address the recent Termination notice that has been issued to one of its academies, and move forwards to secure the best possible outcomes for children

What's in it for the volunteer?

Improving the life chances of young people, particularly the disadvantaged, is critical to the UK’s social and economic success. The objective of the academies programme is to change education in England for the better by raising standards. As multi-academy trusts (MATs) grow and develop in pursuit of this objective, they face significant challenges. The skills and experience of business leaders can help these trusts and their pupils succeed.
