This newly developed qualification, the equivalent of the former CSBM qualification, is accredited by ILM and designed specifically for school business professionals and aims to provide the knowledge and skills required to further develop their career.

It is open to new or aspiring school business managers, as well as those already in post as an SBM or a similar role such as Finance Manager, Office Manager, School Administrator, Business Support Officer, Bursar, HR Manager, etc.

Professionals working outside the sector are welcome to apply but must have identified a host school as assessment has a strong focus on practical school-based activities.

With the Level 4 Diploma now a mandatory qualification for the post of School Business Manager in East Sussex County Council Schools, CAST plans to run the programme locally starting late next term, with face to face sessions taking place at Newick Teaching School, East Sussex. We are canvassing all of Sussex schools including Brighton and Hove and West Sussex and if sufficient interest is expressed, will consider running more than one cohort.

The programme is a blended learning programme, a combination of online learning and three face to face sessions. The programme would be scheduled to start in the November with the first face to face session taking place in December 2018.  The cost of the programme is £1475 plus VAT.

More detailed information about the programme.

For those colleagues that may already have the CSBM or DSBM we have approval from ILM to deliver single units from the programme by way of top-up, these include finance or marketing.

If you /  your School is interested, please can we receive your reply by 3pm on Friday 27 July.
