Breakpoints in growth and scaling up – supporting the Trust Capacity Fund

Breakpoints on are non-incremental points of growth, where a trust cannot continue to operate the way that it always have. Typically, a new mind-set, different operational capacity, consideration of centralising functions and a review of governance all become necessary.

If your trust is eligible for the Trust Capacity Fund and intends to grow, you will need to think carefully about breakpoints and, if another trust is joining your trust, how to scale.

This masterclass is organised by CST Professional Development Ltd on behalf of the Confederation of School Trusts (CST).
