What We Do

DYET was set up in order to enable the Diocese of York to have a legal role in relation to academies.  DYET is a ‘corporate member’ of academy trusts, which means that it takes part in appointing individuals to be Directors of each Church of England trust in the area covered by the Diocese (from the Humber to the Tees).  In some cases, DYET is formally an academy sponsor.


In collaboration with the York Diocesan Board of Education and the Diocese’s education team, DYET also has an interest in promoting the Christian ethos of our academies, as well as the best standards of learning and teaching, management and governance.
