Workshops available both AM and PM:

Developing your executive –
This session will focus on how the trust board works with and supports the senior executive leader, what the executive structure might look like in a MAT and how it will develop over time, looking at the requirements for the MAT CEO role, considerations for CEO development and pay, and forming an effective relationship between the executive and the board.

Vision and culture –
This session will explore the key theme of developing a healthy MAT culture, forming an identity for your trust, what it means to be one organisation, fostering a sense of place and the role of community, and how those at a local level can both influence and relate to the work of the trust board and executive team.

Stakeholder and Community Engagement – Wayne Norrie, Greenwood Academy Trust and Ruth Agnew, Coop Academies
In this sessions Wayne will discuss his experience of how stakeholder engagement can work in a MAT, including how the trust board and executive engages with parents, pupils, staff and multiple communities.

Collaboration in MATs - Edward Vitalis, Bright Futures Education Trust
In this workshop, Edward Vitalis will take delegates through the journey that Bright Futures have worked through, looking at their ethos and values, sharing their successes and failures to promote open invitational collaboration that has been non competitive in nature to foster sharing, and the transition Bright Futures has been through.
