National Fair Funding Conference Autumn 2019
Tuesday 19 November 2019 | Pentahotel, Reading
Following the Government announcement regarding the National Funding Formula and the additional £1.3 billion in spending in 2018-19 and 2019-20, many are still left with questions unanswered. With further uncertainty surrounding what happens after 2019-20, for example, how pay and pension budget pressures be funded beyond March 2020, this timely one-day event aims to provide delegates with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of how they may be impacted by the proposed changes to educational funding.
As with our previous Fair Funding Conferences, our comprehensive programme incorporates a series of plenary sessions with a range of smaller workshops. Highly practical in focus, these workshops will be hosted by a range of relevant experts from the Department for Education (DfE), and peers from Local Authorities as well as relevant commentators meaning you’ll be far better informed and better prepared to move forward with any proposed changes.
