The nuclear family; centralisation of core services to eradicate inefficiencies
Vickie Keeling, trust director, United Endeavour TrustWhen it comes to schools and academies there’s no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ solution. However, given the significant time and cost savings that can be realised through the centralisation of core services – such as finance and HR – it’s no surprise that collaborative working structures, such as MATs, are pooling resources. In this session Vickie explores what moving to a centralised system entails and how can you ensure that you eradicate inefficiencies and ensure greater consistency.
Take home points:
- How a relatively small MAT (three secondary schools) moved to fully-centralised core services for finance, HR, H&S, estates, data, IT, careers and guidance, community lettings and governance
- Approaches and processes which will ensure schools within centralised service MATs are fully-integrated and that every transaction is linked to student outcomes
