School Business Leader Programme

Programme details – see important update below

The School Business Leader (SBL) programme is being replaced by the new Senior Leaders Masters Degree Apprenticeship (School Leaders), a new two-year Level 7 Master’s degree.

The SBM Partnership is developing a range of new ‘trailblazer apprenticeships’ which are scheduled to start in 2018 for current school staff, including school leaders and school business managers. If your school is contributing to the apprenticeship levy fund then you will be able to draw on your funds to pay for these new qualifications.

The Senior Leaders Masters Apprenticeship (School Leaders) programme will enable middle and senior school leaders, such as School Business Directors, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Executive Officers and Chief Finance Officers, the opportunity to complete a Master’s degree in school business management.

The first intake should be delivered during the Autumn Term 2018. Please contact us at to register your interest and we will update you with further details in 2018 once these have been confirmed.
