Financial Information Networking Sessions (FINS)

These lively and interactive sessions are intended for school / academy finance staff at all levels, Finance Officer to Business Manager, and provide a wealth of useful and topical information in the education finance arena. They are normally held twice yearly in the Autumn and Spring terms at venues all around the county, but we will include a Summer term FINS if there is sufficient information to impart.

Alongside the information gathering aspects of these sessions, there is also an opportunity for finance staff to informally network with colleagues before the presentation, enabling individuals to share ideas and seek solutions to problems over a tea/coffee.

In order to streamline the service, FINS places must be booked via the EES training portal >>. If you do not have a login, please register now>>.


Places are limited so please ensure you book early.
