Brochure for Northern trusts
An education powerhouse is forming in the North as multi-academy trusts (MATs) seek to close the gap with the South. The pace of change makes robust and effective governance ever more important.
The Department for Education, Regional Schools Commissioners and the Education and Skills Funding Agency have high expectations of all academies and the North is under increased scrutiny. Trusts therefore need to have the right people with the right skills around the board table to provide challenge and scrutiny, guidance and support. A rich and ready supply of high-calibre board members is vital to raise standards for all pupils.
