Liz currently works as Federation Business Manager for two schools in Bushey that only recently became a hard federation. Liz also consults for Herts for Learning as a School Business Management Consultant, providing support to schools to help improve business services and ensure best value. Previously, Liz was employed at Herts for Learning as an SBM Consultant as part of the core team, providing strategic business manager support to school and academy clients. She was also involved in leading new initiatives and provided training and facilitation to other business manager colleagues.

Liz has worked as SBM since 2011, gaining her CSBM qualification in October 2012. She has experience of providing SBM support to other schools in Hertfordshire on both a short and long term basis. She has secured both lottery and locality budget funding to provide improved outdoor provision for two schools. An expansion project to provide an extra classroom block at the school, along with relocation of the Early Years provision has provided valuable business management experience.

Her knowledge of health and safety along with her implementation of processes and procedures resulted in a school being commended following an H&S audit. Liz has considerable experience of successful budget planning and financial management in a school with very limited financial resources. She has been very proud to have been a member of the School Leadership team within a school moving from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘outstanding’ in two years. Liz believes that the SBM role is essential to school improvement and is a strong contributor in moving schools forward.
