Following demand from participants on our highly successful face to face programmes, we’re offering a limited number of people working in charities and small businesses access to high quality online courses in professional skills.
You can’t buy these courses yet (the best way to be the first to know when they are ready is join our monthly community newsletter).
However, we are currently looking for up to 10 people to beta-test each one for FREE. We’re offering you:
- completely free access to the course
- on completion of the course a one to one coaching session via Skype or phone, which would normally be only available for those taking up the premium support
- The opportunity to be the first to try our new training offer and help make sure it is tailored for your needs.
There’s no catch* – but we only want people who are genuinely committed to using the course and benefiting from it.
For voluntary sector organisations:
- Introduction to budgeting for small charities
- Financial management for small charities
- Spreadsheet skills for charities
- Bookkeeping for small charities
- Introduction to the role of treasurer
For small businesses:
- Using finances to plan ahead
- Financial management and cash flow for small businesses
- Spreadsheet skills for entrepreneurs
- Bookkeeping for small businesses
- Be your own Finance Director
Please get in touch with Coordinating Director Rachel Eden via firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you’d like to be considered for this opportunity.
The budgeting for charities course will start late January to this but the other opportunities will become available from February onwards.
*Why are we doing this?
Firstly we are determined to make these courses as good as they possibly can be – and to do that we need a really commited group of early adopters to help us shape this and tweak it. As a thank you for their help that group will get the course free of charge.
Secondly we love to train and help people and this is a great way to give back – we’ll be hand picking these beta-testers, so it will be people we think will benefit from the support and are committed to it.
Finally we hope that our early adopters will become advocates for what we do in the same way that many of our current clients are, although that all depends on us delivering for them.
That’s it. We said there’s no catch.
