The Department has worked with the Future Leaders Trust to successfully pilot the Executive Educators programme for Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) leaders, which is now being rolled out. The Department is now working closely with a number of leading business schools and higher education providers to ensure that the distinctive programmes which they will each be offering are designed to meet the range of needs amongst current and future MAT leaders.

The programmes will focus, through a tailored approach, on enabling participants to acquire the business and management skills needed to run and grow a MAT sustainably and effectively. Indicative topics may include: vision-setting and developing strategic capability, governance, financial analysis, commercial awareness and working effectively in partnerships.
