Event description

Description

Effective governance provides strategic direction and control to schools, academies and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs). It creates robust accountability, oversight and assurance for their educational and financial performance and is ambitious for all children and young people to achieve the very best outcomes (Competency framework for Governance January 2017)

We have developed a series of workshops, facilitated by experienced MAT Trustees and Members, specifically aimed at developing knowledge, skills and confidence for effective MAT Governance. All workshops are free standing but together form a structured programme.
