CIPFA believes everyone who manages a budget or cost centre in a public sector organisation has an important role to play in ensuring all resources are used as efficiently and effectively as possible.
As a response to this, we are developing seven ‘Finance Skills’ modules that cover core finance topics.
When taken together, the seven modules can lead to the Diploma in Finance Skills for Public Sector Managers and will give you a broad and solid grounding in the areas that make up public financial management.
When purchased individually, they will enable you to focus on the areas that relate most closely to your job role.
The modules have been designed specifically for those who have no formal qualifications in finance or accountancy but who, as part of their job roles, need to understand robust governance, budgeting and financial management and best practice in procurement and fraud prevention.
For those with an interest in specific areas, the following modules are now available for £99 +VAT each. Click on the links below to learn more and make your purchase.
The remaining modules and the full Diploma will be available in the coming weeks.
- Finance Skills: Commercial Awareness - essential guidance to support the decision making process around commerciality of public services.
- Finance Skills: Risk Management and Assurance - how the various areas of business risk impact on the corporate governance of an organisation.
