Our Schools Finance Consultant provided one of the best training sessions I have received. She has the ability to tailor her training to the individual needs of the customer taking into account their skill sets and capabilities. She has expert knowledge in a number of areas which she shares on an empathetic basis. She also has the ability to pace the training and provide essential tips to assist in improving the efficiency and productivity of the individual.
I am already looking forward to my next session with her.
Patrick Leavy has been working with our school as Schools Finance Manager since April 2017. He is very strategic in identifying areas for future savings. He has been instrumental in steering the school into the next phase of development, including the 5 year budget. Patrick’s presence and support at meetings with the Head, SBM, LA and governors has been most valuable.
We have received excellent advice and support from our HR advisor. This had included guidance on a support staff restructure, leading meetings and drafting letters which have all been done to a high standard and in a timely manner. Thank you for all that you do.
