The role of the consultant, whether internal or external, is a complex one. When it is related to the business model, the skill sets required are diverse and varied. A consultant is required to have excellent people and communication skills as well as have a sound knowledge of the sponsor organisation’s vision and strategy.
In this course we aim to provide a backdrop to some of the key areas that need to be continually refreshed.
Additional modules we would advise are: Finance for non financial Managers, Interpreting Financial Statements and Managing Budgets.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
