Financial accountability and management for governors – webinars

Governors for Schools and the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) are pleased to announce a free webinar series to be held this September on financial accountability and management.

Stephen Morales, Chief Executive of ISBL, will present three webinars on different aspects of financial accountability and management in schools, focusing in particular on how those responsible for governance can work effectively with school business professionals to achieve the school’s strategic aims:

The webinars are free to join and open to governors on all types of board (including trust boards and academy councils/local governing bodies). If you’re unable to join us at the time, the webinars will be available to watch on our website shortly afterwards.

The Institute of School Business Leadership has worked for over 20 years to promote excellence in school business leadership. One of the Institute’s main aims is to bring together the pillars of school leadership – pedagogy, governance and business – so that schools are better placed to improve pupil outcomes.

Further details of Stephen’s profile can be found below, along with more information about the individual sessions.
