Institute of School Business Leadership launches in place of NASBM

The Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) has been unveiled with a pledge to provide a voice to all school business professionals.

The new Institute will succeed the National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) and has a more formal role as a representative body for the school business profession.

Since NASBM’s plans to become an Institute were announced, the sector has been consulted on what should be the priorities of the new organisation and a clear mandate has emerged from this.

School business professionals feel the priority for ISBL is to ensure they have greater professional status and credibility.

Speaking ahead of the official launch of ISBL, its chief executive Stephen Morales commented:

“School business professionals have rightly called for greater professional status, recognition and credibility. This was clear in the feedback that we received since announcing the transition of NASBM to ISBL and, therefore, ensuring practitioners enjoy the status they deserve will be central to our role as an institute.”
