MAT Governance – artfully crafted or a hard nut to crack?


Are you struggling with MAT governance? Knowing what good looks like for the size of your MAT can be challenging. Louise Cooper of Governors for Schools presents new survey data about the roles and responsibilities of Trust boards and local governing boards at school level – covering MATs of all sizes, and in all regions of England. Hear insights from our work placing governors and trustees in MATs across the country. Plus, we’ll explore the implications of these learnings for those wanting to become a Trustee or a Governor – and what you can do to find the right people.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
