MATs are increasingly central to the effectiveness of the school system and of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards.

This new event in the SCHOOLS NorthEast calendar will bring together around 300 senior leaders from schools, academies and MATs from across the region. 


Delegates from MATs will have the opportunity to think about what their new roles entail the unique challenges that they face and inspire them to reach new standards enabling them to network with their national and regional colleagues. It will inform schools and academies who have recently made the decision to join or form a MAT, as well as those exploring potential options moving forward


The event is aimed at Chief Executives; Executive Head Teachers; Finance Directors; Chairs of Trustees; Other MAT leaders; Non MAT school leaders and governors considering converting to MAT status.

With the education landscape still undergoing significant transformation and changes to structures, assessment, curriculum and statutory testing, it is now more important than ever for our MAT Chairs, CEOs, Executive Head Teachers and Trustees to be up to date with the latest developments in education, policies, practice and procedures.
