Trust Local Advisory Committees (TLACs)
In large MATs, the board may decide to appoint committees that oversee groups of academies. UWMAT Board has made the decision to appoint Trust Local Advisory Committees (TLACs) and these are grouped into hubs. TLACs may include MAT trustees but can be anyone that the board selects based on their skills and knowledge.
Boards of trustees decide what to delegate
It is also up to the board to decide which, if any, of its functions it wants to delegate to TLACs a MAT must have a scheme of delegation setting out how and what it delegates.
Some MATs choose to have ‘advisory boards’. These are bodies whose role it is to engage with parents and local communities, understand their views and needs and listen to their feedback.
Boards should be closely linked to advisory boards and take into account and respond to any issues or risks that they identify and feed back to the board.
