On April 28th 2021, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson declared multi-academy trusts, “the best structure to enable schools and teachers to deliver consistently good outcomes.” Since then the government has announced the release of over £24m to support trusts and to help schools to form trusts “so they are better able to take on underperforming schools in areas of high need”.

The MAT Growth and Merger Conference responds to the enormous increase in multi-academy trusts – there are now over 1100 – and the shortage of information and guidance for MAT leaders around growth and mergers.

Here at Blue Apple Education we are preparing our in-house expert to address the conference. Some of the UK’s leading academy trust experts in the country will be delivering engaging, practical, and fascinating sessions – amongst them our own Mark Davis.

Mark has a wealth of experience in supporting schools to vastly improve the effectiveness of their school branding, marketing and communications, working with hundreds of MATs and training countless school leaders.

You may know Mark from our Out of the Blue video podcasts, so this is your opportunity to see what he looks like in a suit and to draw on his immense skills and knowledge of the sector.

Apart from Mark, there are several significant learning opportunities to get stuck into on the day – here’s a few highlights:
