Strategies to drive school improvement at EduTECH

The School Business Management Congress will look at the challenges you are facing, strategies to add value and how to drive school improvement. As budgets continue to be squeezed and workloads increased the challenge is to "do more with less" in supporting teaching and the smooth operation of your schools. Couple these pressures with expectations of compliance, probity, responsiveness and new service cultures.

The School Business Management Congress is designed for school business managers, finance managers, marketing managers, bursars and administrators looking to improve the finance, operations, administration, marketing and strategic direction of schools.
