Business Leaders Service

Support for all business related issues

A culture of growing autonomy and the fragmentation of traditional structures within our education system, allied with a very challenging economic climate, has brought into sharper focus the need to ensure that all ‘business’ related aspects of our schools and colleges are effective, efficient and fit for purpose.

We can provide wide ranging support delivered by experienced business management professionals to help schools and colleges evaluate their existing business management provision and suggest appropriate solutions to and potential options for development of this pivotal role.

Our services include, but are not restricted, to:

  • recruitment of business leaders and managers

  • induction/mentoring/support – for business leaders and managers (especially new into post) and other school and college leaders, regarding business management issues

  • strategic financial planning

  • reviews of policies and procedures

  • bespoke service review on issues such as:

  • facilities/estates management

  • financial management/payroll

  • office and administrative systems

  • catering

  • cleaning

  • grounds maintenance

  • clerk to governor support for the governing body
