“Business engagement in education is essential for a strong society to help young people gain the skills they need for work. Academy trust boards across the country need senior business people and professionals to join them as pro bono non-executive directors or trustees.
Sir Michael Rake, Chairman of BT Group PLC
Academy Ambassadors provides a free, bespoke service to HR, corporate responsibility and talent teams in organisations that are seeking board roles for their senior leaders. We work to match business expertise with multi-academy trusts seeking to strengthen their boards.
There is no better way for an organisation to focus its engagement in education than by working at board level. Employee time invested in multi-academy trust non-executive director roles has significant impact across many schools and pupils. Employees are rewarded with intellectual challenge and the development of their leadership capabilities.
The Academy Ambassadors programme has already been adopted by employers like PwC, Lloyds Banking Group, Rolls-Royce and Mishcon de Reya. Find out more here.
