Our training is delivered by top quality sector experts who understand the current fundraising climate and the challenges you face as a fundraiser.


Our internationally recognised qualifications will enable you to gain professional recognition, improve your earning potential and develop your career in fundraising. Our qualifications are well respected in the industry with 96% of our delegates consistently rating our courses good or very good.


We run a programme of one day conferences throughout the year which focus on innovation and best practice across a variety of fundraising techniques. These events provide a great opportunity for fundraising professionals from across the country to come together and share ideas and experiences.
