Testimonials

Experience and development in a different sector

Sarah Cooper, BAE Systems and Non-executive director
Wimborne Academy Trust

I applied for a Non Exec Director position with a Multi-Academy Trust because I saw it as an opportunity to contribute the skills and experience I have gained in my career to support the work of the Academy and at the same time, giving me experience and development in a different sector. I was delighted to be appointed recently and look forward to working with the Trust Board.

Ongoing success of the trust

Philip White, Chair
Unity Schools Trust

I would like to thank you again for the support and contribution to the board of trustees at Unity Schools Trust (UST) both recently and since 2016.
With your help we have changed the board from one based on representation from governing bodies to one that is now predominantly skills based; since 2016 we have appointed three trustees via Academy Ambassadors (AA) and are about to interview candidates from you for a fourth independent trustee role.
The range and quality of candidates has always been of a standard which has enabled us to identify individuals with the personal attributes and business skills required at that time. While I realise that we have, at times, been very selective, we have learned to rely on your advice and the services provided by AA to support the transformation of our board and the ongoing success of the trust.

Thank you for your support.

Philip White, Chair, Unity Schools Trust
