“I help bursars and headteachers of independent schools control the rising costs of running their school, whilst simultaneously maximising the finite revenue they receive which allows them to re-invest their increased cash reserves to the direct benefit of their students.”
As an independent school Bursar, Head Teacher or COO, you will recognise that independent schools face many challenges, not least of which your school is an education establishment, a charity and business all rolled into one. Managing the challenges these multiple identities presents is a constant pressure for you and often done so without the necessary expertise in place. You do what you can with the resources you have.
With the rising costs of running a school, coupled with the finite level of revenue coming in means it is often difficult to think of anything but the short-term, when really, it’s the future that your school wishes to invest and make plans for.
Thankfully there is a way to meet and overcome these challenges.
Working with me and the deep network of specialists within Auditel offers an opportunity to partner with your school to provide expert, impartial and ongoing procurement advice. In other words, you can focus on your core areas knowing that you have a dedicated team of specialists looking after such areas as cost reduction, supplier tendering, contract management and monitoring.
Poor procurement is the silent killer of your school’s growth and capacity to attract the next generation of students. Getting to grips with this area is often the key determiner of the long-term financial health of your school.
And the even better news?
Often the work that we can do on your behalf comes as no direct cost to your school and can be factored into the savings made or the contracts negotiated on your school’s behalf.
But don’t just take my word for it, you can view our case studies here to read about the many successes we’ve had working with independent schools.
