Introduction to Budgets

Gain the confidence to interpret financial information and have the language to engage in effective financial conversations. Gain familiarity with budgeting tools and how to use them to improve outcomes within your role.

Budget Management Course

Designed to support those with responsibility for managing budgets to decipher this essential skill. You will leave with the techniques and confidence to manage and control your budgets effectively. Financial terms and budgeting tools will be explained in a way which a non financial manager will understand and relate to within their role. You will be able to apply skills in a range of situations. 

Finance for non-specialists

Financial awareness is vital in meeting strategic aims and objectives and in delivering a value added, cost focused service to stakeholders. This course will provide the key basics, in terms of helping you understand the key financial statements. The course will provide a useful introduction to budgetary management in terms of ‘ services and analysing how and where costs can be more effectively managed.

The course is particularly designed for non financial accounting practitioners, with limited experience and knowledge of this area. Therefore, it will provide a relatively ‘jargon free’ overview that does not focus on the more technical aspects. However, the course provides practical insights and guidance on the underlying concepts and key financial information statements that can help improve decision making.

Financial & Commercial Acumen

Delivering strategic aims requires a more commercially focused approach to provide a value added service to stakeholders. For organisations to empower a more agile and autonomous workforce is essential to delivering a world class service to all our stakeholders. This course will provide you with insights in terms of how your role and function fits in with this bigger picture. It will also identify common issues that arise in operational activities and help determine tools and solutions to deal with these issues. You will gain a wider perspective of how the functions integrate with one another, your place within this and the value you (and your team) can create.
