Supporting schools in a rapidly changing environment

Significant numbers of schools are taking the first steps to develop formal partnerships at the start of a journey to form a multi-academy trust. Collaboration is nothing new for most, but the rapidly changing education environment is shifting thinking towards multi-academy trusts as the partnership option of choice.

NPW is proud to currently provide an extensive range of professional support services to over 100 schools, many of whom are maintained. Supporting our clients to consider partnership options, through academy conversion, is a natural extension of NPW core services.

What does the NPW MAT PACK include?

Our MAT PACK provides wraparound support from the first conversation about partnership to academy conversion and beyond. The service provides:

  • Crucial support with the due diligence process to help form the right partnerships
  • Dedicated project management support, working alongside NPW service experts, through to conversion
  • extensive post-conversion service packages to support the developing needs of the multi-academy trust
