Business & Finance Zone

THE BUSINESS & FINANCE ZONE IS AT THE HEART OF THE SCHOOLS & ACADEMIES SHOW!

This Zone is home to the biggest players and providers in school business and financial management. With help from specialist procurement advice, improved financial management, and planning systems, schools could save far more than needed to fund any ‘little extras’.

Visit our dedicated zone for Business & Finance and be part of the conversation with the Department for Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency as they assess the latest developments impacting the funding landscape, and how all schools can further develop their financial management and business planning, in order to deliver improved efficiency outcomes across their institution.
