In his letter for Education Sunday 2021, Bishop Alan reflected on his firm belief that the best future for our schools is to work more closely together by joining Catholic Multi Academy Trusts (CMATs) to formally shape the Catholic education system in their locality.
This webinar is a short course intended to support governing bodies of Catholic maintained schools as they start to explore joining a Catholic multi-academy trust (CMAT) and provide the opportunity to ask questions.
The training will cover:
• Current position of CMATs in the Diocese
• Structure of CMATs & role of members/trustees
• Potential advantages and challenges of joining a CMAT
• Next steps
Facilitator: Stephen Adamson, Diocesan MAT Development Officer
