Finance Training


FINANCE TRAINING......VAT TRAINING......YEAR END FINANCE TRAINING...….INTERNAL CONTROLS..…...FINANCE FOR COUNCILLORS......

We have an agreement for members with The Parkinson Partnership for finance training covering a range of topics in any given year. The topics are normally driven by the upcoming priorities for councils, for e.g. budget training will be in the Autumn and concludes just before the New Year. Similarly year end finance preparation will be geared to the period leading up to Spring. Booking on to one of these courses is different from those run by DAPTC. The link below is for The Parkinson Partnership website and they will confirm your booking. Once the training is complete we will then organise your invoice and if required CPD Points / Certificate. The courses are open to other councils around England so spaces book quickly, so don't hang about! 

Cancellation – the full course fee will be payable if advice of cancellation is not received by DAPTC at least five working days prior to the course date.
