MAT Excellence Awards are presented by Optimus Education and are an esteemed recognition of excellence in the education sector. Businesses can now officially nominate their organisation for four different categories.

  • Company of the year (for businesses that provide products or services to trusts and have revenue under £3 million per year)
  • Company of the year (for businesses that provide products or services to trusts and have revenue over £3 million per year)

What makes your organisation the company of the year? What have you done that’s excellent in this area? What differentiates your company or makes it stand out from the rest?

We also have two other categories that you can nominate for.

  • Product of the year: How is your product outstanding? What sets it apart from other products for trusts? 
  • Trust collaboration award: What is exceptional about the way your organisation has collaborated and worked with trusts? What sets you apart from other organisations in the area of trust collaboration? 

Select one or more categories to register your nominations and you will receive a nomination pack for each category selected, with award criteria and a nomination form to complete and submit by the deadline of 4 December 2023.

All shortlisted organisations will be invited to attend the prestigious awards ceremony in Summer 2024, with more than 300 attendees from multi-academy trusts due to attend too.

Please note that the cost for this submission is £200 + VAT for Optimus Education Preferred Partners, and £250 + VAT for others.
