The SGSBL Group was recently established to bring together business professionals working in all schools within South Gloucestershire. At its first meeting on 28 June 2017 it was agreed that the group would work together to:
- Share best practice;
- Organise quality CPD to fit the needs of the School Business Professional;
- Explore joint procurement opportunities and ways to secure best value;
- Provide mentoring/support for those new to the role;
- Help shape the provision of the specialist services provided by South Gloucestershire and it’s trading arm Integra.
As an affiliated group to NASBM our vision is to promote, embrace, develop and empower the role of the School Business Professional whilst working to secure career progression opportunities and recognition of the contribution we make to education.
The group will meet three times a year with an annual conference. The Annual Conferrence will provide quality CPD, key speakers, relevant exhibitors and an opportunity for members to share some of their own valuable ideas and practice.
The groups’ twitter account allows us to reach out to other business professionals nationally.
Membership of the group is open to anyone working in a South Gloucestershire School supporting the business. All schools are welcome. An annual fee of £50 per member provides free access to all meetings and conferences and the SGSBL member only website. If you would like to sign up to our group – you will need to complete our online application form: http://www.sgsbl.org.uk/signup/
