NASBM Professional Standards

NASBM is proud to launch the 'NASBM Professional Standards' – a suite of standards for school business management professionals, comparable to those already available for other staff in schools. 

These standards are intended to: 

  • Set out the core and specialist areas of competence required to be successful in the school business management professional role;
  • Assist those currently working in, or aspiring to work in, the school business management profession to perform their role as expertly as possible;
  • Set out the content of both initial and continuing professional development for those entering or developing their career in the profession;
  • Provide a framework for the development of qualifications and other professional recognition for school business management professionals.

Further resources are available to view in the yellow panel to the right hand side of this page.
