The Further Education CFO Programme
Leadership, Management & Governance Training
The above fees only apply to those Chief Finance Officers working for eligible English Further Education and Training organisations (GFE's and Sixth-form colleges, for example) as they are subsidised by the ESFA.
The fees for Chief Finance Officers from Wales, Scottish and Northern Irish organisations who wish to attend will not be eligible for this subsidised rate as education budgets have been devolved to their respective governments. For organisations outside of England, the cost to attend this course would be £2,000, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
SET members are entitled to an exclusive 15% discount off this ETF professional development course.
