About this event

Course outline

This accredited training evaluates and determines how finance business partners can best support their organisation from both a strategic and operational perspective via range of methodologies and current best practice. On completion of the course, delegates will be able to maximise and enhance the relationship between finance and non-finance professionals across their organisation to place finance at the heart of decision making. This qualification offers a unique blend of online and classroom based training as well as providing refresher guidance on some of the technical/professional skills required of a finance business partner.

By teaching delegates how to deliver strategic insights and reporting back to the business, the Finance Business Partnering Level 7 Certificate ultimately drives increased operational performance for organisations operating within the public sector.

Launching in December 2017, the course will be delivered over a four to five month period. Interactive classroom sessions will be held once every five weeks at the Beautiful Wallasey Town Hall.
