Sigma Trust

Challenge 

 

The Sigma Trust is a multi-academy trust in Essex comprising 12 schools in total, including a mixture of secondary and primary schools. Across all schools, the trust has 1600 staff contributing to the education of 11,000 pupils, as well as 60 trainee NQTs. 

 

With compliance processes being overseen in one central point, the Trust faced a challenge of ensuring the onboarding and workforce management processes for all schools were straightforward, efficient, and cost-effective during a period of severe staff shortages and financial strains across the education.
