School Business Management
The professional confidence to take on the challenges ahead
The School Business Management (SBM) profession has risen quickly in recent years, particularly as the majority of schools in England move from a local authority school-based model to a centrally funded academy model. The role of a School Business Manager has also evolved from school bursar and school secretary to include senior management of all administrative and logistical aspects of running a school efficiently.
ILM's new School Business Management qualifications are designed to develop the careers of non-teaching staff in schools by:
- Formally recognising successful School Business Manager skills
- Aligning leadership and management skills to the new Professional Standards.
ILM's new qualifications have been developed with the National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) and are based on core areas of the NASBM Professional Standards. Starting with building essential skills in school management at Level 4 through to improving strategy development and implementation skills at Level 5, these qualifications are designed specifically for an education setting.
