Accredited school business management programmes

See News Item below for latest Covid-19 update.

We are the largest and most experienced provider of school business management programmes, having delivered school business manager (SBM) training to thousands of school business managers since 2003.

The NEW Level 4 Diploma for School Business Managers is accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) and this is the most popular starting point for many participants wanting a recognised SBM qualification. It was formerly known as the Certificate of School Business Management or CSBM.

The newly-launched Level 5 Diploma for School Business Leaders is also accredited by the ILM (and was previously referred to as the Diploma of School Business Management or DSBM).

New SBM apprenticeship standards are available from 2018 (see News item below). You can apply for the new Level 4 School Business Professional apprenticeship here.

Whichever level you choose, you will benefit from a recognised qualification which will help you manage your school’s resources more effectively and enhance your own professional standing. Use the menu buttons above to search for these and the other school business manager training opportunities that we offer.

Covid-19 update

It is ‘business as usual’ for our upcoming SBM programmes as far as possible in the current situation. With many schools being temporarily closed we are keeping in touch and updating our existing participants via email. For new programmes you can apply as normal using the links on this site. To contact us please email…
