New resource from the 2018 MAT development programme

The Department for Education has released a new resource from the 2018 MAT development programme. 

The guidance is intended for senior leadership teams of multi-academy trusts (MATs) of any size or stage of development, and it can be used as a tool to help them further develop and improve.

The resource consists of suggested questions to consider in relation to the key aspects of a MAT’s operations, such as the following:

  • School improvement and developing people
  • Governance and risk management
  • Finance and school resource management. 

The questions are suggested areas of focus that help MATs to reflect on their practices; they are not considered a definitive list.

The guide also includes suggestions for how the questions can be used, either as a self-evaluation tool or in partnership with another MAT. It is for MATs to decide whether and how to use this resource.

Access the guidance here.
