This 3.5-hour online course will demystify the fundamental accounting concepts and terminology that underpin financial reporting, enabling managers, board members, and other roles without formal financial qualifications to fulfil their responsibilities with confidence.

Target Audience

This course is intended to benefit those who do not have formal financial qualifications/training. Delivered using simple language, it will give attendees a better understanding of financial terminology and reports, inc: Management Accounts, Annual Accounts, Trustees/Directors’ Reports, Statements of Financial Activities, Balance Sheets and Cash flow. Great for those in either a first-hand finance role or not, i.e. board members and senior managers. This course would also be useful for administrators and general managers that minute board meetings.


The course is an informal mix of the trainer’s presentation and discussion. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and draw on their own experiences.


Suitable For: 

Anyone who has responsibility for writing and/or reviewing risk assessments or who would like to get a better understanding of what’s involved and why.
