The training day will also give a good grounding in digital project management for anyone whose role includes smaller web development projects, for example adding functionality to an existing website or creating a microsite or simple application.

Our course is also suitable for charity leaders who want to get to grips with the nuts and bolts of a website redesign and fully understand what the project will involve.

In-house training

We’re more than happy to come to your offices and run a training day for your whole fundraising department, senior management, website working group, or communications team.

At the start of a major website redesign, our training day is a great way to get everyone on the same page and secure buy-in for the project.
