This online course introduces the key skills you need to prepare and analyse project budget monitoring and forecast reports, including donor financial reports.
The eWorkshop is run over five weeks and is fully supported by our field-experienced trainers. There are no 'live' sessions so you can complete the learning resources, team-based activities, and practical assignments in a time that suits you. You should plan to spend up to 1 hour each day on the eLearning site, and a total of 5 to 7 hours to complete each weekly module.
"The practical work of updating your own budget monitoring report was really engaging, and made the learnings realistic as there was an opportunity to apply them.”
