This module will explore both the general responsibilities that the governing body and school staff have for the management of their school premises along with specific advice on the management of capital projects.
It will give the opportunity for participants to ‘manage’ two virtual school building projects from conception to completion. Participants will be guided through the relevant steps and provided with guidance on statutory requirements and checks. Areas to be covered will include:
Applying for funding
Drafting specifications and managing statutory requirements: CDM regulations, H&S, insurances
Dealing with challenges during a project
Managing ‘snagging’ and project close
Participants will be encouraged to discuss past experiences and share learning with others.
It is hoped that the case study approach will make the training realistic and accessible.
Leader: Jane Maharry, Premises Officer, with support from School Business Managers
