Improving the life chances of young people, particularly the disadvantaged, is critical to the UK’s social and economic success.
By working together, inspirational educationalists and talented business leaders can provide a better future for the next generation.
Academy Ambassadors provides a free, bespoke service matching business people and professionals with multi-academy trusts looking to strengthen their boards. Multi-academy trusts are schools that come together to raise standards, governed by one ‘trust board’. Since 2013, the not-for-profit programme funded by the Department for Education has introduced over 650 business people and professionals to trust boards.
We are a small team with five staff based in London and two staff in Manchester. We also work with five consultants (Regional Advisers) who are based remotely. Academy Ambassadors is part of the New Schools Network (NSN) Charity which supports the creation and development of free schools.
