CIPFA Property are proud to support the work of School Business Professionals throughout the education sector.
Advice and training
As experts in strategic and operational property matters we know what is needed to ensure a schools infrastructure and estate is well managed, not just on a daily basis – but long term. Whether you need training, tools, consultancy or just a friendly bit of advice we are here to help you be the best you can be.
We are proud to be working closely with the Education Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA) as well as the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) to provide guidance and support to school business professionals.
CIPFA Property has collaborated with ISBL to deliver two new half day events:
- Introduction to School Estate Management and
- Introduction to Managing School Building Compliance
Full details of what the events cover and how to book can be found on the ISBL website.

CIPFA Property recognises that school business professionals don't always have the background or expertise to help support their organisations as well as they need to when it comes to looking after school property. That's why we have devised a series of information notes which tackle the most important and critical areas you need to get to grips with if you want to ensure compliance, value for money and efficiency.
