Finance for Non-Finance Managers is intended to provide an overview of the main aspects of finance confronting an increasing number of individuals in public service organisations. Devolved financial management responsibilities have led to a redefinition of many roles and the establishment of many budget holders. This has led to an increased need for people with an understanding of financial reporting, management accounting and control and audit. This one day course course is aimed at providing an overview of these areas of finance.
The course will specifically deal with the following issues:
an awareness of the role of the finance function in the organisation
an understanding of financial reporting practices and techniques
