About this event

There will be pivotal points where you are looking to grow as a MAT.  But with significant workloads how do you grow without jeopardising your current operation? We will walk you through the conversion process and highlight some key areas, from our experience in schools, to be aware of and how to navigate through them. 

In this session we will be discussing:

  • Common scenarios and challenges around conversion management
  • How to ‘de-risk’ your growth
  • Funding your growth – including TCaF bids and New School Bids
  • Conversion management – what to expect and managing resources
  • The importance of due diligence and what should be included
  • Typical timelines of conversion management.
