Growing and Developing a Trust - London

Wednesday 22 Mar 2023
ILEC Conference Centre, London
Grow your MAT with a sustainable model that aligns with your trust’s ethos.


Why is this conference relevant?

The current vision for how education will look in 2030 relies upon all schools and academies growing to be, or joining, a “strong Multi-Academy Trust.” 

This event will equip you with tools and techniques, alongside valuable case-studies of successful trusts, to aid your journey of sustainable growth.

Learn from tried and tested strategies, gather new ideas and contacts, and deepen the impact of your processes and systems to ensure your trust’s future is on a path that suits your goals.

Meet other MAT leaders to discuss the pitfalls and progress you’ve had during your growth journey, and take away methods to balance your budget, expand your central team effectively, and bring your processes in-house.

What can I expect?

At this free event, enjoy access to our expert speakers and MAT leaders so you can make connections that will help you down the line. Tailor your day to suit your academies’ needs with a choice of nine workshops alongside our keynote addresses and panel discussion.

  • Take away strategies to ensure your growth process is sustainable whilst reaching its potential.
  • Understand what systems can realistically be established in-house from lived experience.
