Webinar recording: Financial management for non-government schools

On 2 September 2020, we hosted a webinar on financial management for non-government school principals, business managers and board/governing authority members.

A recording of the briefing is available.


Presented by John Somerset of Somerset Education, the webinar covered:

  • Education State funding and ambitions (presented by Elizabeth Cullen, Department of Education and Training)
  • the financial viability requirement for schools
  • attributes of a financially sustainable school
  • accounting for non-accountants
  • how to analyse your school's financial performance, identifying and quantifying efficiencies to inform school strategy
  • how to analyse risks and report performance
  • where to source key information.

Thanks to those who joined and participated in the live webinar.

This webinar was part of our School Financial Management Series. For a recording of the other webinar in the series, see:
