MATs: what makes good governance? (Optimus Education report)

28 April 2017

Great boards build, grow and sustain great multi academy trusts (MATs). They ensure a clear vision and strategic direction, hold the MAT to account and oversee its educational performance and financial management. 

Recommended supplier, Optimus Education, have recently compiled a report featuring a forward from our own Mark Blois. The report features case studies on:
  • confidently adapting governance structure as your MAT grows
  • identifying the skills and knowledge needed for a strong board
  • innovative ways to help recruit governors and trustees
  • planning CPD activities to enhance the abilities of trustees.
