Strategic Business Leadership Professionals
"My background isn't in education and I'd never been part of a union but I realised that I needed to be able to call on support because of the responsibility and change in my role. I've had help with my contract and advice on claiming back funding that my school had lost. I would strongly recommend ASCL to SBLs." Director of Finance, West Midlands
Strategic business leadership professionals are an integral part of the leadership of a school, college or trust, however as an School Business Leader, Finance Director, Head of Operations or other senior leader from a non-teaching and learning background, you do need dedicated support from an association that understand the complexities of your role.
ASCL has three former school business leaders as part of our Specialist team, Hayley Dunn
, Julia Harnden
and Louise Hatswell
and we offer dedicated support to SBLs
on strategic financial planning, procurement, due diligence, income generation and much more.
Other professional bodies that your school/college/trust may be a member of do not provide personal support
to you on employment and other concerns. Membership of ASCL is for you as an individual and you can be assured that we will always act and represent you in your best interest regardless of whether other colleagues within your leadership team are members.
