Strategies and solutions needed to help schools develop

Vanessa Wright
Generations Multi Academy Trust

"I got involved in the Generations Multi-Academy Trust for a number of reasons. Over the course of the last year, I have moved into the Schools business at Pearson. Firstly, running our Schools Australia business and more recently have moved back to the UK and joining our Schools business here. Multi-academy trusts are growing in number in the sector and this experience has proven invaluable to understand the kinds of challenges the schools, teachers and learners are having. This insight really helps me think about the strategy and solutions we need to be developing to help schools achieve their goals. I have been hugely impressed with the professionalism of the Generations MAT and the quality of the conversations about how to help every student fulfil their potential. I have been heartened that this is exactly what we are also hoping to do at Pearson - helping people make progress in their lives through learning - and what and how we can better support our schools to do that.

Secondly, this newly formed multi-academy trust has a school in the trust with a demographic in an area very similar to where I grew up and I feel very lucky that I have been able to have experiences and opportunities that not everyone was able to have. This is my opportunity to give something back to a school like the one I went to so that others navigating the school system also feel that they can dare to dream and aspire to achieve things they never thought they would or could too.

Thank you Academy Ambassadors for enabling me to have this opportunity to work directly with a trust and group of schools. It has been a fantastic learning experience and a great opportunity for professional development."

We were impressed with AA's highly organised and professional service, which took all the headaches out of the recruitment process. They found two extremely high calibre individuals with exactly the skills we needed to strengthen our board. We would definitely have struggled without them.
