This will be achieved through collaborative purchasing and working across all member organisations wherever beneficial and through consistently applying best practice in financial control.

The Heart of Mercia Academy Trust will be a supportive employer with many opportunities for staff to share best practice through formal and informal staff development across all member organisations of the Trust.
