This course is only available on a consultancy basis where we come to you.
School governors and leaders are under increasing pressures to make sure they direct the school’s resources to activities that deliver maximum educational outcomes and best value for money. In times of budget restraints and sometimes income reduction, this becomes more challenging and governors need to scrutinise budget allocations more critically. A cost centre management approach to the organisation of finances facilitates easy interrogation of financial information and assists in informing appropriate decisions going forward. Whether or not you are fighting to make your budget go further, this programme will help you to prove and challenge budgetary allocations and support and defend the areas you want to protect. It will inform and ease the budget-setting process.
Templates will be provided on a data stick to help you get started on your return to the workplace.
Course delegates should bring one laptop per school with Microsoft Word and Excel (not Open Office). The laptop will need a USB data port.
