The new ISBL professional standards are now available on BlueSky

4 January 2019

In December 2018, ISBL launched a revised suite of professional standards for school business leaders. These professional standards reflect the changes to the working environment for leaders in the last few years.

As an ISBL approved partner, BlueSky, the UK's leading performance software solution for schools, has incorporated these new professional standards as it did with its predecessor, the NASBM standards, into its extensive bank of professional standards covering a wide range of teaching and support staff functions.

The ISBL professional standards incorporate a tiered approach to reflect the level of contribution that practitioners are making towards professional disciplines and are intended to be used by all school business leaders.

Using BlueSky, school business leaders have the facility to self-review against these standards, add supporting notes and evidence and view overall or detailed results to help them highlight their professional development strengths and training needs. Their self-review can be updated as often as the individual wishes and can be shared with appraisers or mentors within the BlueSky system.

In addition to the self-review facility, BlueSky also enables all users to record their own professional objectives and CPL as part of their own portfolio. School business leaders can also use BlueSky projects to share discussions and documents across the BlueSky network.
