11 May, Cavendish Conference Centre, London W1
What are councils accountable for and how do you develop a successful delivery strategy? How will partnerships be formed, roles accounted for and results delivered? The public health white paper encourages councils to work with partners to develop efficient local solutions that contribute to improving the health of local communities. This conference will be a practical guide to the process. Delegates include heads of social services, council chief executives and directors of public health and improvement.

Managing financial performance in schools
24 May, Cavendish Conference Centre, London W1
Following the schools funding crisis in 2003, an Audit Commission report claimed that 'nowhere in the system - neither at government nor council level - is there reliable, consistent and up-to-date information about schools' budgets and financial positions'. The government has introduced new funds and funding structures and this LGC event will give headteachers, bursars and local education authority staff the tools and insight to manage school funds. Experts will give practical advice on how to access and combine funding streams, and schools funding arrangements for 2006-07 will be analysed.
