Securing long term financial viability for your school

Course description

With decreasing annual budgets school leaders now face unprecedented challenges. Many are seeking to improve educational standards, albeit with fewer resources, whilst ensuring long term and sustainable financial viability. This course will give you the tools to review your current operational structures. By analysing internal teaching, learning and support structures you can develop an operational model, which is both optimal to present circumstances and also sustainable into the future.
