Training for Finance Trainers

Training for Finance Trainers

This workshop is available as an In-person English workshop.

In this highly participatory workshop designed for finance trainers in the international development community, we help you improve your skills and confidence in course design and facilitation skills to deliver relevant and effective financial management training to NGO personnel.

Our expert facilitators will share tools and techniques you need to be a more effective facilitator. Participants will engage in facilitated discussions, group exercises, games and illustrated presentations – then be taken “behind the scenes” of the workshop to learn how to develop course content, manage the training room and adapt to the needs to learners. Participants will return to their office ready to apply course design principles to their technical content. 

What will you learn? 

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Write ‘SMART’ learning objectives as part of the course design process for a finance training session
  • Create a session plan for a finance training session using the ‘CPR’ process
  • Create effective resource materials to support the learning
  • Demonstrate at least 15 different participatory training techniques that can be used in finance training
  • Deliver a participatory-style training session using plain language, to build financial skills and knowledge
  • Describe how adults learn and why we should take this into account when designing a course
  • Outline strategies for dealing with challenging situations that arise during a training event

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for:

  • Finance staff who provide financial management training and support to work colleagues and partner NGOs


  • Experience of NGO financial management or accounting is required
