ISBL North Wales Regional Conference 2018

Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) Regional Conference- Thursday 7 June 2018 - North Wales

This event has been prepared specifically for School Business Professionals and Headteachers in Wales.  The event will be addressed by Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education, Welsh Government.  

 The event is solely focused on the development of school business leadership in Wales, whereby all content is tailored specifically to the needs of this audience. 

The content will focus on the main issues and opportunities that are emerging. Therefore, the theme of this year’s regional conferences is 'Confidently approaching change', covering the increased specialist roles, the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations from May 2018, effective contract and supplier management and how to successfully secure additional funding.

It is evident that the complexity of school business leadership will continue to expand and ISBL will support our members and the sector by providing the assistance and career development required to professionally and confidently approach the coming changes.

This event will also benefit from a plenary delivered by Steven Gasser, our new Executive Director of Professional Development. He will detail how the Institute of School Business Leadership can support practitioners in Wales.

Finally, each of the regional conferences are planned to allow for a small exhibition to run alongside the one-day event, providing delegates with an opportunity to meet suppliers face-to-face and assist in the procurement cycle.
