The FSSU is running a number of practical hands-on school budgeting workshops. The workshops are free of charge and are open to Principals in particular and any other school personnel involved in the budget preparation process such as school accounts secretaries, bursars and finance subcommittee members.

The workshop will incorporate an update on the financial issues currently affecting schools. During the workshop, we will assist you to prepare your school budget for 2020/2021 on your laptop.
