busy times and priorities my workload. Referring to the NASBM Standards, as an aspiring SBM I believe I obtain the personal skills required to be an effective SBM with previous experience in HR & Marketing, however this also identifies areas I need to develop in; such as Finance therefore, would say I currently sit in the school administration area (Tier 1) In most areas and hope to gain the relevant knowledge required to be a successful SBM by completing this course. There is much scope for me to develop my skills further which this course will allow me to do and enable me to practise this knowledge in my school, developing myself further in management and leadership skills highlighting the need for an SBM and securing this opportunity if it arises. 2.3: Analyse own professional role and challenges Above is an illustration of my role analysis; based on current role this shows much of my time is spent completing administration duties, To extract myself from mainly admin duties and step into more management and leadership activities, I have put in a request to shadow the office manager once a week and attend SLT meetings to learn about how the goals are set then see how the objectives can be met, the challenge I would face is falling behind on admin duties, however this can be tackled by better time management and also delegating a few duties to other team members. I have previous experience working in a HR field as a supervisor, therefore have developed skills in areas such as open communication, HR, marketing, negotiation and excellent time management, however this also identifies the need to develop my skills in the school finance and infrastructure area. 2.4: Produce a professional development plan based on a review of own professional needs: See Appendix 1, an area I need to develop my knowledge is school finance, with reference to the NASBM I want to be able to understand the school procedures in processing and recording financial transactions and producing financial information and believe this can be gained by receiving training on the school finance system and observing finance officer, I believe this will help me to move to tier 2 (NASBM) and enable me to understands financial accounts and the principles of double entry booking. My second objective is to develop a better understanding of school asset management; by reviewing and updating the current asset register and ensuring an effective system is in place. I will need to liaise with the site manager to allocate time for training purpose. Part 3 – Exploring the political and organisational context of school >GET ANSWER
