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 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 that is both optimal to present circumstances and also sustainable into the future.

Aims and objectives

Whether you are a head teacher, principal, governor or school business leader, you will: 

  • Learn how to analyse your current teaching and support staff structures to identify areas where savings can be made
  • Have the opportunity to learn about financially efficient school structures and best practice models
  • Learn how to develop a school re-structure plan to drive through efficiencies and savings that don't compromise teaching and learning
  • Understand strategies to avoid the common mistakes often made when reviewing teaching and support staff structures
  • Learn how to lay the best "groundwork" early to ensure any subsequent restructure/redundancies don't get ensnared or derailed by the usual HR issues

What people have said about this course

Excellent facilitator, I arrived feeling deflated and disillusioned about the schools deficit - I left feeling inspired and string, ready to tackle the financial position without sacrificing pupil outcomes.

We thoroughly enjoyed the course and got more from it then expected.
