According to a report issued by the House of Commons Education Committee, over 15,000 state-funded schools will convert to academy status and become part of a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) over the next couple of years.
What impact will a MAT's continued expansion have on their administrative processes?
MATs have a unique set of requirements when it comes to reporting, as collaborating across multiple sites and geographical locations can be difficult.
As a MAT continues to grow, so too will their administration challenges. This makes the need for tailored services and, importantly, software specifically for MATs more important than ever, in order to give flexibility and consistency to reporting.
How Tucasi can help
We have been working with MATs to help them communicate and work collectively with their academies by including centralised reporting within our software. This removes geographical barriers, streamlines administration, in turn reducing costs and improving collaboration across the trust.
Our National Sales Consultant has seen the growth of Multi Academy Trusts increase over recent years; “I have talked to many schools, both before and after they join a Multi Academy Trust. The benefits of being part of a MAT can help implement best practices, helping them to thrive. However, administration for a group of schools can be a headache for the central team if the software is not consistent across the Trust. That is where we can help with central access and group-wide reporting”.
