We continue to welcome applications directly from schools and academies that wish to access the exemplary support of our Lead Schools and advisers.
Support for existing Partner MATs
The MAT stream of Behaviour Hubs is a two-year programme and was designed for trusts that are looking to develop new behaviour approaches across multiple schools within their trust. MATs receive one-to-one support from an exemplary MAT exec team (a Lead MAT), as well as extended support for an academy within their trust.
The support, training and advice they receive throughout the programme is tailored to each individual MAT’s requirements. Similarly, new behaviour approaches that are developed and launched are a collaboration between their trust exec team and the Lead MAT they are matched with.
