Join BESA launching our very first Compass Report!


Join us for the launch of our new Compass Report, a termly deep dive into the spending priorities of schools in the UK. Based on interviews with head teachers, bursars and MAT leaders this report will cover all areas of school spending including furniture, assessment, management information systems, EdTech, IT hardware, teaching and learning resources and staffing.  

Attending this webinar will give you 

  • A thorough understanding of the new compass report – what it is, how it was put together and how it will benefit your organisation 
  • First sight of our new digital dashboards, and a walk though of their functionality 
  • The chance to hear from teachers who contributed to the research, as they provide further insights into school spending priorities  
  • The opportunity to ask questions of BESA, Jason Gould or the teachers – make sure you get the answers to the questions that are important to you 


The new BESA Compass Report is designed to provide up to the minute guidance on the key spending trends emerging in schools right now. 

We will be joined by our research partner Jason Gould of the Education Company who will talk through the key objectives of this new report and the methods used to compile the data. He will also showcase our new interactive digital dashboard that will enable you to interrogate the data in more detail. 

The session will also include contributions from teachers who contributed to the research, giving their perspective on the findings. They will also be available to answer questions from members during the Q&A. 

Finally, there will be a preview of the other BESA research reports coming in 2023. 

Make sure you join us on 19 June to be the first to benefit from these new research reports.
