MAT governance - changing structure to increase value for money

For multi-academy trusts, ensuring a robust scheme of delegation is vital. Watch this webinar to learn how to review your structure and become more cost-efficient.

In this webinar, you will develop your understanding of:

  • why governance structures need to be reviewed in a multi-academy trust
  • how to determine drivers for change
  • how to manage a move to a new governance structure
  • how to evidence the benefits of change and a new structure.

As they expand, MATs must make sure that they constantly review and adapt their schemes of delegation.

In a growing trust, getting governance right involves making sure leaders are held accountable and that value for money is achieved to provide long-term sustainability.
