We work closely with some of the country’s leading professional education bodies, organisations and suppliers. It gives us a greater understanding of the sector and allows us to deliver the kinds of banking services you need.
We are proud to have partnered with the following organisations:
ISBL, which transitioned from the National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) in November 2017, aims to provide the sector with confidence in the school business leadership community through the development of a framework of qualifications. This is underpinned by professional standards linked to membership categories that provide practitioners with the professional recognition and status they have earned and deserve.
With increased levels of scrutiny and more direct accountability, the school business community will need to demonstrate high levels of competency, professionalism and expertise as pivotal education leaders. The institute will provide members with recognised qualification and assurance of their professional competency, which can be used to support career progression.
Governors for Schools exists to improve educational standards so that children and young people have the chance to realise their full potential. Since 1999, we have been connecting schools across England with skilled and committed volunteers, supported by our business and university partnerships.
Governors for Schools have dedicated partnership managers who guide volunteers through the application process and help facilitate their appointment to school governing bodies. Schools can register their governor vacancies with the charity using the online governor recruitment service. Governors for Schools provide free training for school governors in the form of e-learning, monthly webinars and a 12 month free membership of the Key for School Governors once appointed.
