FREE financial planning lessons for school leaders

The Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) is offering free integrated curriculum and financial planning (ICFP) sessions to school and academy leaders.

The short sessions, which will help your understanding of school budgets to plan the best curriculum for pupils, will be held throughout 2019 and 2020.

The free events – funded by the Department for Education (DfE) – will cover:

  • What is ICFP?
  • How ICFP is used and its impact.
  • Examples of how you can use ICFP in your schools (including primary and special schools).
  • How ICFP can be implemented and used collaboratively as part of the strategic planning process.
  • FAQs

To sign up to either a one hour webinar or a half-day workshop, visit the ISBL website for more information.

Commenting on the announcement, the ISBL said the sessions will give school leaders a “broad understanding of the basics of ICFP”.

“The webinar has been designed specifically for school business professionals, headteachers, governors. Understanding ICFP can enhance collaborative and informed decision making by your school’s leadership team,” it said.

“We recognise the varying range of backgrounds, school settings and personal knowledge and experience of ICFP that individual participants will have and will account for this in the training delivery.”
