Professional Development Leader Programme: Multi-Academy Trust engagement FD023R / C22


This course is for Lead and Senior Professional Development Leaders (PDLs) who are accredited with CPD Quality Mark 

Many schools are already part of Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs), with the number projected to rise over the coming years. This short training session focuses on the educational landscape relating to MATs and how STEM Learning's MAT service can be used to foster initial discussion around support. The session also looks at planning support for MATs through use of a service plan and consultancy. 

In this 90 min remote course, you will consider the factors that drive a MAT to engage with subject-specific support and the benefits to them in doing so. You will also develop a rounded understanding of the full STEM Learning offer, enabling you to have more detailed discussions about support needs across a MAT. 

Who is the course leader?


  • Understand the context of MATs within the educational landscape 
  • Understand how STEM Learning's MAT Service supports engagement 
  • Implement a MAT engagement plan
