This course builds on the Introduction to Finance course, also available on The Learning Hub.
The course is aimed at both civil society organisation (CSO) programme and finance staff.
The course seeks to introduce learners to more advanced financial management concepts and processes. This includes internal controls, the management of funds and external grants, revenue recognition, and asset and inventory management. The course also provides a step-by-step guide to the process of financial year closing, and introduces CSO staff to the concept of audits and best practices related to preparing for them. It also gives a brief introduction to effective filing, necessary for keeping all CSO financial records in order.
