Strategy Consultancy

For schools and multi-academy trusts
Whether you are reviewing your aims for the new academic year or looking longer-term, we all need to make time to consider the purpose and mission (the ‘WHY’) of our schools in a changing world. SSAT can help you and your teams to identify and shape priorities by facilitating opportunities for reflection and goal setting.

Strategic consultancy for schools, multi-academy trusts and others.

External facilitation to support schools, MATs and others organisations with strategy planning and engaging stakeholders.

A member of SSAT’s education team will work with you and your teams to facilitate reflection on strategic priorities, review previous goals and develop inspiring and ambitious goals for the future, aligned to your vision and values.

Whether you are looking for facilitation of a senior leadership away day, a workshop with governors/trustees or a series of stakeholder engagements, we can work with you to design and deliver the right blend of activities. There is great power in setting aside intentional time for collective visioning, big picture thinking and building strategic consensus.
