Careers in CBAT

School Resource Management Advisers

CBAT has been working with the Department for Education (DfE) and the Institute of School Business Leaders (ISBL) to assist in the implementation of SRMAs in the South West and has recently secured a contract to supply 10 SRMA’s for deployment in the South West.

The DfE said “SRMAs are ‘school business experts’ who will use their expertise to help schools and trusts (SAT or MAT) to drive transformational change within the sector by supporting them to maximise their use of resources in order to deliver positive educational outcomes”

We are working with collaborative partners and accredited SRMAs to offer either a stand-alone SRMA support service, or as part of a deployment of a National Leader of Education (NLE), enabling schools to access peer to peer support, helping them to review their practice by identifying and advising on strategies with the aim of finding financial efficiencies, deficit recovery and improvement of the business function, leadership and operations.

With CBAT support SRMAs achieve accreditation through the ISBL and are deployed to schools, identified by the DfE, to carry out a review of systems and processes in order to inform a strategic improvement report that is delivered to the leadership of the school.

For more information about becoming an SRMA please see attached information. If you would like to discuss a request for deployment, please contact:
