Our specific aim is to deliver world-class education and skills to the communities we serve. BCAT sees itself as being part of a local family of schools and academies and will only consider sponsoring institutions if they wish to be sponsored by us. Our commitment to our local communities means that we are fully focussed on this area alone, meaning that all of our resources are locally available at all times.
Structure of BCAT Governance
BCAT has appointed two Local Advisory Bodies ("LABs") and although not directors of BCAT itself, the LABs provide scrutiny and support at academy level.
