Freedom and Autonomy for Schools (FASNA) and ITN Productions have launched ‘Shaping The Future’ – a news and current affairs-style programme, which in the first in the series, features Diverse Academies Acting CEO Debbie Clinton.

In this piece, Debbie discusses with ITN’s Natasha Kaplinsky how a joined up approach to leadership is driving success across the trust. She goes on to outline that critical to driving up standards is effective, strong governance; employing the very best quality educational professionals; and that ensuring the operational professionals supporting the core business are equally of the highest standard.

The ‘Shaping The Future’ programme explores the systems, structures and cost-saving innovations that are helping to secure standards at a time when student numbers are rising and teacher and support staff costs are increasing.
