Although most education settings are not-for-profit organisations, business planning is as important in this context as in profit-driven corporations. This unit focuses on essential educational determinations in developing business plans for schools. Educational business planning and capacity building discusses the rationale and objectives for education business plans and investigates how these can be used as a tool for organisational capacity building.

The unit aims to be practical and of immediate relevance, where participants tie together the vision and mission statements, strategic goals and budget considerations and think about how all this is going to be achieved within their actual school context.
