Cantium’s experience

Cantium HR experience

As we’ve pointed out, we are well-versed in human resources advisory for education. Multi-academy trusts need special support as they need to deploy a range of policies across the entire structure. A large Academy Trust contacted us because they needed to develop and implement a standardised set of policies and unify the procedures throughout all of the schools. The Department of Education had ranked this Academy first in delivering secondary education, so we had to live up to the challenge.

We appointed a dedicated HR consultant to partner with the trust’s human resources lead in developing an approach that met all legal requirements and could be smoothly applied to the structure of the organisation. As a result, together we created a new comprehensive set of policies and deployed it across all of the schools. Cantium helped their team gain valuable insights into the process and enabled them to provide more efficient advice, which gave them greater control and saved key resources.
