The aim of the MAT Review is to support MATs in developing an understanding of effective ways to meet the requirements of all learners.
For this process to have the necessary impact on learner outcomes, the MAT should have the confidence to state what it can do well and what it needs further support with. The process should be an open, reflective, honest and collaborative one and be used as a development opportunity.
