Session Overview:

The focus of our first meeting will be – Financial Sustainability Through Collaboration.

With decreasing annual budgets, school leaders now face unprecedented challenges. Many are seeking to improve educational standards, albeit with fewer resources, while ensuring long-term and sustainable financial viability. 

This session will give business managers the opportunity to hear the latest updates on the new funding formulae, the apprenticeship levy and the GDPR requirements.

Philippa will then lead a session looking at the advantages of working collaboratively to create economies of scale locally, with in-depth analysis of how this can be achieved and the way forward to secure financial viability.

This workshop will give colleagues the “tools” that they can take back to develop an operational model that is both optimal to present circumstances and also sustainable into the future.
