The Association of Network Managers in Education was founded in April 2014 by two school Network Managers who had worked in schools for over 20 years.
After running their own informal local Network Manager meetings, they soon outgrew their conference facilities. This led to arranging more suitable venues, making them available to more Network Managers, covering a wider area. The Association of Network Managers in Education currently have 900+ active members, consisting of Network Managers and IT Technicians across the education sector.
The Confederation of School Trusts (CST) is the national organisation and sector body for school trusts in England advocating for, connecting and supporting executive and governance leaders.

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) brings together the existing responsibilities of the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and Skills Funding Agency (SFA), creating a single funding agency accountable for funding education and training for children, young people and adults. ESFA is an executive agency, sponsored by the Department for Education.
The Association can trace its origins to local group meetings in the early 1990s. Bursars began to emerge in the state sector as a result of the new autonomy enjoyed by schools awarded grant-maintained status. In 1994, a meeting of like-minded bursars led to a resolution to promote national participation in an organisation dedicated to representing the profession.
In 1997, the National Bursars Association Ltd was formally incorporated in response to an increasing demand for a more formal representative body.
In 2008, the association commissioned a rebrand exercise and made a conscious move away from the term ‘bursar’ to reflect the broader responsibilities and complexity of school business management. The National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) was born.
The move to become the Institute of School Business Leadership, in 2017, is firmly rooted in this same key principle which saw the emergence of the organisation over 20 years ago.
