So you want to be a bursar?

If you are considering a career as a bursar or are a senior member of the support staff within the independent school sector why not book to attend our popular 'So You Want to be a Bursar?' webinar course. The course offers an invaluable insight into this stimulating and challenging career. 

The course is delivered via four webinars split over two days.  Timings for the webinars on the first day are 11am - 12.15pm and 4pm to 5.15pm.  For the second day, timings are 11am - 12 noon and 4pm to 5pm.  The webinars are available to non-members of ISBA as well as support staff currently working in independent schools who are looking to progress their career.

Access to the recorded sessions and presentation is included in your fee and you will also receive a copy of the publication 'The work of the bursar: a Jack of all trades?', a one-year subscription to our termly magazine plus a one-to-one follow-up phone call with our Chief Operating Officer or Chief Executive.

You are advised to book early as the number of places available are limited in order to provide a valuable attendee experience during the webinars.

Each webinar session will provide essential information on:

  • an overview of the independent education sector
  • current issues and challenges for the independent sector
  • the challenges of being a bursar in both a large and small school and how to find the ideal job with advice from a specialist recruiter for the independent schools' sector
