Being a CEO Programme

Marshall Professional Development is delighted to announce the release of our new and accredited, modular Being a CEO Programme. The programme is aimed at anyone wishing to become a Multi Academy Trust CEO, anyone who has just become a CEO in a Multi Academy Trust and even existing CEO’s who want to up-skill as part of their own CPD. Many elements of the programme are also applicable to anyone simply wishing to improve their leadership skills.

Practical over theoretical

All modules focus on practical rather than theoretical thinking as we believe this is where real learning helps this unique role. Our course has been written in conjunction with experienced CEO’s who all told us what they would have loved to have known before they started their journey.
The programme involves 6 one-day modules and – circumstances allowing – will be delivered in person at existing Trust locations.

The Modules:

Module 1 – Being a CEO
Module 2 – Strategic v Operational
Module 3 – Academy Finances
Module 4 – Strategic Planning
Module 5 – Growing the Trust
Module 6 – Stakeholder Engagement and Communication
All modules include a Q&A session with an existing and experienced CEO where you can seek real-world, practical advice and tips about the role from others who have walked the walk.


We have priced our CEO course to be the most competitive on the market. The cost for the whole course is £5000 plus VAT. You can even pay for the course monthly.
This unique programme benefits not only you and your development, it also benefits your Trust in many ways. Our philosophy for this programme is simply this; improving skill sets, improving outcomes.
