Getting it right: Curriculum led financial planning

A viable and sustainable curriculum must be at the heart of every school’s resource management model. In a landscape of increasing financial pressure and significant curriculum and funding reform, all senior staff, governors and trustees need to understand how to approach curriculum-led financial planning.

Accessible and practical, this one-day course will focus on the underlying principles of curriculum-led planning, and considers how effective staff deployment can future-proof the curriculum against rising costs. Spreadsheet tools for curriculum planning, resources management, staffing structures and deployment will be provided, and can be adapted to meet the needs of your individual organisations.
