Simple clear explanations, plenty of practice with the example to complete but with the guide of the correct answers. Cost was low and fair.
Feedback on Understanding your Charity's Finance
I’ve worked with many CICs and charity boards, but now I really understand their roles and responsibilities, making future collaborations much easier.
Feedback on Introduction to Good Governance
It really summarised the key points of applications perfectly and was a great skills refresher without containing an overwhelming amount of info.
