Managing the Business of Schools

Edited by:


October 2006 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Written by experienced consultants, this book explores the key themes surrounding the role of the School Business Manager, and offers guidance for dealing with the practical issues of the job.

Experts in the field provide practical advice on the essential technical aspects of the role, such as managing risk, managing facilities and human resources, and the book also considers strategic issues and addresses "big questions" such as the workforce remodelling agenda and extended schools.

Each chapter contains a useful summary of key points, case studies, and suggested further reading for continued study.

Senior Management Team members, school governors, school business managers, students of school business management and anyone involved in and interested in the effective management of schools will find this book an invaluable source of reference.
