In this webinar for school leaders, we will explore a range of ideas, techniques and systems to ensure your school budget is sustainable in the long run.

We will focus on:

a. Balancing the budget and what can be done when faced with a budget crisis.  We will look at ways to solve a short term budget crunch.
b. Benchmarking to stay on track with expenditures. We will discuss tips to ensure your budget does not blow out over the academic year.
c. Creating school budgets to ensure the long term health of the school. How to create long term plans to keep budgets in check.

This webinar will be suitable for school leaders. If you are a teacher or head of department, please join us for Jen’s other session – How to Get Budgetary Approval for Your Dream Project, where we will look at what needs to be included in your proposal that will give you the greatest chance for it to be approved.
