What is keeping the education sector up at night? with Faith Kitchen from Ecclesiastical

Summary: Our latest Education Risk Barometer research gives us critical insight into the ever-changing world of schools. The political and financial landscape is changing, parents are demanding more, workload is increasing and the challenge of net zero is looming. Listen to understand the top concerns in the education sector and what Ecclesiastical can do to help.

Quote: “One of my biggest takeaways was there are so many risks out there at the moment and so many different things that schools are struggling with that actually, to have a really embedded and strong focus on risk, and in particular, strategic risk management will be so important for schools going forwards.”
