NOA: Funding The Future Conference: 10th March 2020, 2.30-5.30pm, The Space

Norwich Opportunity Area warmly invite you to attend our free conference on all things funding to ensure the legacy of your work now, and into the future. Simple, hands on sessions walk you through the ways and means to successfully gain funding for new and continuing projects and will help you make it part of the way your school does business. Can you afford not to?

Who should attend? Successful bids are a team effort – strategic fit, bid writing and admin skills, and the practitioner’s view on implementation

School leaders – Find out about local priorities that could attract funding, be a basis for collaborative bids and align with your school’s improvement plan

Business/finance managers and staff – Get tips on bid writing, see exemplars of successful applications and plan resourcing for successful implementation, evaluation and reporting

Practitioners eg Communication Champions/ Inclusion Champions/ SENCOs –  consider how best to choose the interventions that will fit your school and curriculum, and hear about the challenges of implementation
