Multi-academy trusts (MATs) are organisations that oversee and manage multiple schools within a specific region or area. Partnering with businesses can provide several benefits for MATs.
First, business partners can provide financial resources and funding for projects and initiatives that may not have been possible otherwise. This can include funding for new technology, facilities, and programmes that can help improve the quality of education and resources available to students. In addition, businesses can provide expertise and mentorship to teachers and students through internship and mentorship programmes, as well as providing real-world perspective and experience to the classroom. Partnering with businesses can also help MATs to build partnerships and connections within the local community, which can lead to increased support and resources for the schools within the trust.
