MAT CEOs tell boards what they should be paid

Governors call for honest debate about whether power in academy trusts is concentrated in the hands of too few people .

Some academy trust CEOs have been telling their boards what they should be paid, rather than going through due process, governors have warned.

The finding, in a National Governance Association (NGA) report published today, comes the day after the Department for Education tightened the rules about how the pay of academy leaders is set.

The NGA document, “Moving MATs forward: the power of governance”, says: “In isolated cases, NGA is aware of trusts that have allowed their chief executive to present the board with proposals for their own pay for the trustees to then decide if this is fair or not, rather than undertaking a due process.”
