Finance and Resource Management Hub

 

We understand the challenges faced by those in schools and trusts with responsibility for financial oversight and strategic resource allocation.

Increased scrutiny and accountability to numerous external agencies and internal stakeholders mean that practitioners need to be not only familiar with their regulatory responsibilities but also have appropriate mechanisms to monitor and report on progress and risk.

This unique hub aims to provide a one-stop shop for guidance, regulatory requirements, auditor interpretation, practitioner experiences and answers to those frequently asked questions.

The Hub has been set up as an organic repository, and the content will build over time as we gain access to new insights and as changes to policy and guidance bed in.

We hope you find this tool useful, and we would welcome hearing from you if you have any relevant experiences you would like to share.
