Here is a breakdown of what is included in our latest edition:

Managing the threat of fraud in the education sector
Schools have for some time been a favourite target for fraudsters, who can often break through your defences, gather information and target you in busy periods such as the run up to the end of term. Anil Ahluwalia a Relationship Director in the Lloyds Bank education team discusses further and provides eight top tips to help mitigate a fraud threat in your organisation.

Technology in the classroom – does it always compute?
A story that came out recently, and is a hot topic in education, is the latest report by the OECD (The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) examining the impact of computers and technology in the classroom. Timothy Corns a School’s Project Manager from Kumon discusses further the advancement of technology in schools across the UK.

Improving financial efficiency through effective curriculum planning
Planning for the longer term is critical for sustainable growth, and the integration of curriculum and financial planning is one of the distinctive characteristics of effective academy trusts/schools. We highlight the areas academy trusts need to consider when adopting Integrated Curriculum and Financial Planning (ICFP).

Make digital happen
How can you kickstart practical digital change in your academy trust? It can be a disorientating task to keep up with the pace of digital change. In our experience, many organisations don’t understand how digital applies to them, or what they need to do to become a digital organisation. We highlight the areas for consideration for the digital landscape in education.
