The Education sector is under threat. 

Increased accountability, constantly changing funding requirements, regulated corporate governance, financial management, and risk management are just some of the threats faced by the education sector today.

As a principal, deputy, business manager, or school board member, you need the right support to meet these demands and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. 

At RSM, we understand the importance of enhancing and preserving an entity's reputation within the community including accountable, transparent, and ethical governance and our education specialists provide timely and valuable assurance services in addition to strategic, financial, and management advice.

How can we help you?


Image removed.RSM has significant experience working with clients across the broad spectrum of the education sector; from the policy/funding level (responsible Government Department) through the post-secondary, secondary and primary levels.


We provide assurance services to enable effective, transparent and timely accountability to government, benefactors, lenders, service recipients, the Auditor-General and the community at large.


We address the issues associated with ongoing business operations, systems, technology, governance and major change initiatives of all types of institutions. We focus on enabling technologies and processes that impact business controls.

We advise the councils and boards that oversee education institutions on compliance with taxation requirements, especially where services are provided for profit purposes.


We assist governing councils and boards that oversee education institutions to operate in an effective, transparent and accountable manner and in the best interest of the community.


Risk management is an integral part of good management practice. It is therefore imperative that councils and boards develop a standardised process for the identification, analysis and treatment of all risks across the organisation. We provide assurance to governing councils, boards and management that key risks are identified and managed in the interest of the entity and the community it serves.
