GEMS part 1: How to put GEMS guidance into daily practice to support your strategic estate vision

About this webinar

The DfE’s GEMS guidance aims to ensure schools can maintain safe and compliant learning environments. There's plenty of tools and checklists on offer to help put good estate management in practice – but are you making the most of them to achieve your estate vision for the next 5/10 years?

Whether your answer’s ‘no’ or you’re feeling unsure, we’ve got you covered!

Watch Ben’s 60-minute session where you’ll be guided through three key components of GEMS. He'll show you best practice to uphold compliance across your sites and assets, plus the advantages of managing the risk (not the register) to reduce the chance of incidents – both now and in the future.

In this session, Ben uses our compliance management solution (Every Compliance By IRIS) to demonstrate:

1. What strategic estate management looks like in practice, including the documents you need to achieve it

2. The insights that can be drawn from an effective maintenance risk-based tool

3. How to use the data in your compliance tracker to promote a safer learning environment – rather than merely compile it

If you’ve got an ambitious vision for your school or MAT estates, make sure you watch this session!
