Sample UST Life

Associate Membership

We are aware that taking the decision to join a multi-academy trust is a significant one. It is important for schools to get a clear insight into what life is like within a Trust, before they join.  As a result, we offer interested schools Associate Membership.

We are keen to share our values, knowledge and experience with individual or groups of schools that would like to benefit from the UST approach to education and school management. 

About Associate Membership

Associate Membership is offered to schools and academies who are interested in securing a better understanding of what it would be like to be part of UST.  Associate Membership enables partner schools to get involved with our work and experience how our Trust works without formally joining.

We believe that Associate Membership should be dynamic and so we would expect to work on projects together, that would be of mutual benefit.
