FMS User Bundles - Discounted Training for Finance Officers

MIS Consultancy & Training



The ICT Service MIS Team provides FMS training courses specifically for new school finance staff and these are now available in a variety of attractively-priced bundle options below.

We recommend that all new school finance staff complete at least the ‘FMS New User’ full course, but the options outlined below allow for a choice of complementary courses to be purchased at the same time at a discounted bundle price.
 
A distinct benefit of many of our workshops is that delegates work on their school’s live data. This allows delegates to complete a useful piece of work as one of the course outcomes.
 
All workshops comply with correct and current processes and procedures required by FMS, DfE and the local authority county finance team.
 
Each Session Bundle Option also includes a delegate place to attend the regular FMS Roadshow (usual price £35 per delegate per roadshow). Held in the spring term, our FMS Roadshow provides an ideal time and place to get much needed peer support and for updates / developments to be shared with you by our experienced consultant trainers.
