Getting delegation of governance right within a MAT for Trustees, CEOs and Chairs of Trust Download Flyer
A guide for boards on considerations when setting or enhancing their governance structure and Scheme of Delegation.

Many multi-academy trusts find that their governance structure and/or Scheme of Delegation either are not fit for purpose or are not understood and look to revise them as their MAT evolves.

This webinar provides guidance on considerations when reviewing or designing a Scheme of Delegation (SODs) or governance structures across a MAT. It looks at current trends, considerations, and common pitfalls and provides an opportunity for participants to compare their governance structures and SODs.

The following will be explored:

  • Refresher on MAT legal structures and trustee responsibilities
  • How a SOD should be used
  • To delegate or not to delegate – the pros and cons
  • Understanding principles of organisational design
  • Considering the rules on separation of responsibilities
  • How trustees should monitor governance systems and processes
  • Ofsted inspections of MATs and the role of the SOD
Who should attend?
Trustees, CEOs and Chair of Trust setting or reviewing governance structures across a MAT.

Rosemary Lovatt is the NLG Advocate for East of England and NE London. She is an experienced chair and governance tutor who runs the Governance Leadership Programme across England.
