Overview

An accurate, robust and well managed budget can be a powerful tool for making sure your service is on track to deliver your strategic aims.

But creating and managing a budget requires good preparation and an understanding of key terms and processes.  If you're new to managing budgets the process can be daunting and the jargon can be baffling.

This practical and engaging course will walk you through the fundamentals of creating and managing a budget.  Even if you've got no finance training or budgeting experience, the practical exercises and expert input you'll receive on this course will enable you to gather the right information, ask the right questions and understand the implications of managing your budget.

You'll learn simple tools and techniques you can use at each stage of the budgeting process. You'll also gain deeper insights into why your budget is important and how it contributes to your organisation's success and that will give you the information and confidence to make better spending decisions.

  • The key principles – what exactly is a budget, what is the purpose of a budget
  • Breaking down and demystifying the key terms and jargon
