Webinar: How to Get Budgetary Approval for Your Dream Project

March 30th – 15:00 GMT+1

In a time when school budgets are changing drastically, how can you ensure that the projects you have planned for your department can still go ahead?

This webinar will focus on how you as a teacher or department lead can take a project from concept to reality, ensuring you have the budget you need to get there. Our expert Jen Olmsted, Head of School at The Singapore School in Indonesia will be joined by her colleague Dan Hyde, Deputy Head at The Singapore School to walk you through everything you need to know about creating a proposal, and everything you need to include to give you the best chance of having it approved.

This webinar will be suitable for all teachers and department leads. If you are a school leader, please join us for Jen’s other session – Crafting a Sustainable Budget Process for Your School, where she will cover ideas, techniques and systems to ensure your school budget is sustainable in the long run.
