Juniper Education announces strategic partnership with the Multi Academy Trust Association (MATA)

Juniper Education has announced a strategic partnership with the Multi Academy Trust Association (MATA).

Juniper Education has announced a strategic partnership with the Multi Academy Trust Association (MATA), the only free to join education association for trust leaders. 

MATA is a community created by MAT leaders to enable members to stay up to date with news, policy guides and attend free MATA events. Members also have access to an anonymous Q&A feature, “Find answers to what MATters“, where they can raise those “tough to ask” questions to gain feedback and guidance from MATA’s expert advisory board, members and partners.

Graham Cooper, chief marketing officer at Juniper Education, said: “The pandemic highlighted the importance of being able to share ideas and initiatives in education. This alliance reinforces our goal to make life easier for schools and MATs by giving them first-rate software, solutions and support they can trust. We’re looking forward to working on some exciting projects together.”

Matt McDermott, founder & chair of the MATA advisory board, said: “It’s great to welcome Juniper Education as our Principal Partner. There’s a natural synergy between our two organisations. Through this partnership, we can fulfil a shared vision to ensure that trust leaders can receive expert guidance and support to tackle the challenges they face.”
