Ensuring that your school resources and strategies are closely aligned is more important than ever in these tough times. It will help you to plan the best curriculum for your pupils with the funding that you have available, whichever your phase or type of school.
That’s why Entrust Education has once again partnered with the Department for Education (DfE) to deliver 10 FREE webinars for school business professionals, headteachers, senior leadership teams, curriculum leads, governors and trustees, estates staff and HR staff.
With the help of Entrust Education’s experienced experts, schools will be equipped to manage their resources effectively, maximising efficiency and, where relevant, ensuring compliance.
Michelle Williams, Head of Service, Education Finance and Payroll, at Entrust, said: “I am extremely pleased to be supporting the DfE in the development and delivery of the school resource management webinars for the third year running. It is especially critical in this current financial climate to ensure your resources and school strategies are aligned for the future of our children.”
This fully online training has been expanded and updated this year with all-new guidance and information. The webinars will run until the end of March 2023 and will cover the following topics:
• How to integrate curriculum and financial planning
• Benchmarking financial metrics – with bespoke sessions for primary, secondary and SEN and alternative provision settings
• Securing best value from your procurement
• Strategic estate management
• HR planning
• Budgeting and annual cycles – with bespoke webinars for either school business professionals or the senior leadership team (SLT) and governors
• Strategic financial planning
Each webinar is being delivered on multiple occasions and at times designed to fit around busy school schedules, to maximise availability.
You can register for as many or as few webinars as you choose but it is strongly advised you try to join them all, so you can gain a full understanding of school resource management and how to successfully implement it in your school. Webinars will be delivered live so you can ask questions along the way and interact with the session.
