MAT CEO  Leadership Development Programme

Following the successful delivery of the Church of England MAT CEO Leadership Development programme over the last three years, we are proud to launch a series of MAT CEO Network events for 2017/18.

Aims and Objectives

To invest in the continuing leadership development of MAT leaders, enabling them to be:

  • Called: Restored, refreshed and inspired with a vision to lead
  • Committed: Equipped, skilled, and engaged to face their unique challenges
  • Connected: Nourished through discussions with other leaders from both other MATs and other industries and sectors

Who are our events for?

  • Both alumni and leaders who have not attended any of our previous programmes
  • Existing MAT CEOs and Executive Heads
  • Aspiring MAT CEOs and Executive Heads
  • Directors of MAT Boards and Senior Leaders within MATs

We encourage MAT Leaders to bring a colleague as attending (and travelling) together sparks shared conversation.

Join the conversation

In November 2017, many MAT CEOs joined us to explore the topic of Making MAT Collaboration Work. You can access the slides from Sir David Carter, Robert Hill and Laura McInerney below.

On May 9th the focus of event 2 will be Making MAT Focused Reviews Work. We will be joined by private and public sector leaders working within highly regulated industries who will share their insights. We will also hear from both a colleague from Ofsted and MAT CEO who has recently experienced a MAT Review. 

On October 16th, we will explore Making MAT Strategic School Improvement and Innovation Work. Be inspired to engage with innovation in the education sector by seeing the opportunity it brings for value creation. At this event innovation experts, Innovation Beehive will share their latest insights on Innovation Ecosystems with us and we will also hear from Toby Greany, Professor of Leadership and Innovation at UCL. Toby will be sharing the outcomes of UCL’s DfE commissioned research into school improvement approaches in multi-school groups. Leaders will have the opportunity to reflect upon what it takes to create a robust school improvement plan.
