The FSSU is running a number of practical hands-on budget workshops to assist in the submission of the budget for the 2020/2021 school year. The workshops are free of charge and are open to Principals and Clerical Officers in particular and any other school personnel involved in the budget preparation process such as 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 draft school budget for 2020/2021 on your laptop.
