In order to provide the strongest support for our academies, Veritas Multi Academy Trust recognises the deep importance of forming strong partnerships.
Veritas Multi Academy Trust is partnered with the Kent MAT Alliance, a group of ten Multi Academy Trusts and a Teaching School across Kent. We are a like-minded collective of trust leaders who strongly believe we are ‘better together’; working collaboratively to improve the educational outcomes of all the children in our care. Formed within the Kent MAT Alliance is a Business Management forum where our colleagues responsible for the operational delivery of elements such as finance, HR and IT also work closely together to share best practice, ideas and the development of systems to improve the organisational framework of our respective MATs.
Our work with the Kent MAT Alliance includes a number of initiatives with a direct impact on improving our individual and shared outcomes such as the sharing of resources, peer to peer thematic reviews and training. We are pleased to have the support of our Regional School Commissioner’s Office and are proud to be part of a collaborative partnership that is directly improving the MAT landscape in Kent and driving improvement in the education and opportunities of pupils in our schools.
