2016 will bring an even greater focus on the role of School Business Leaders and School Business Managers.
The need to deliver even more efficiencies with a budget that continues to reduce in real terms means that some will face very challenging times in trying to secure the sustainability of their school/college/academy provision.
There is an argument that such ongoing fiscal challenges present a unique opportunity for the profession to guide their leadership colleagues in the direction of creative solutions, and that this is a defining moment for us to prove our worth.
ASCL’s conference is one of the most popular annual events supporting the ongoing professional development of practitioners. In 2016 we will provide a range of information from national sources to ensure delegates are as up to date as possible. Our wide ranging workshop programme will appeal to the most experienced and strategic within the profession, whilst at the same time engaging those newly appointed or aspiring to the role and for everyone in between those points.
The membership base of the association is changing to reflect the changing structures on our landscape, so this event has the capacity to offer a much wider scope for networking than ever before.
We welcome ALL those who are in practising roles – whatever the type of structure you work within – and any other school/college/academy leaders (including governors) who are seeking to extend their knowledge and understanding of this pivotal role.
Whether you are a regular attendee or a first timer this conference is not to be missed!

Christine is Business and Finance Director of Wellacre Academy, Manchester and an ASCL Council member.
