Two of the UK’s largest providers of tools and information to school leaders are joining together this Spring to offer a one-off series of free school business management workshops.

Our original morning sessions are almost fully booked, so we’ve added twilight sessions in some cities.

This is your chance to gather in a few hours the most up-to-date guidance, templates, tools and information that will make a difference to your ability to save money for your school.

We’ve also added an additional presentation on the future of school business management. We’ll be looking at the impact on the SBM role of the rise of the academies, the changing role of LAs, the role of technology, the rise of group buying and collaboration. What are the skills needed by the SBMs of the future and what help is there out there for professional development and support.

The Key is the UK’s fastest and most up-to-date support service for leaders of schools and colleges in England and Wales. It currently supports more than 26,000 school leaders nationwide.

Their presentation will cover routes to support.

TES Foundation work with over 1,000 schools, providing online tools, templates and guidance to helps schools manage premises, contracts, procurement, compliance and suppliers.

Their presentation will cover how to be more effective in role by tapping into best practice already present in the education system.
