Inspiring Financial Leadership

Charity finance professionals will learn the latest leadership principles with some practical advice to take them to the next stage of their leadership journey over this 8 day training programme.

Covid-19 response

All of our professional development programmes and events from September 2020 will be delivered online during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will be using different platforms and programme formats in order to ensure that all our programmes offer a high-quality, varied and engaging learning experience.

CCE remains fully committed to delivering our 2020-21 professional development programmes and other events, in spite of restrictions on face-to-face activities resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rescheduled spring 2020 CCE programmes:

Anyone who had signed up for or started a CCE programme which was postponed in spring 2020, will be contacted individually with new dates and programme details.

Programme delivery developments during 2020-21:

Where appropriate we will offer our programmes online for the whole of 2020-21, so that anyone who wishes to may continue to learn online throughout their chosen programme, without the need to travel or attend sessions in person.

During the coming months, City, University of London, including CCE, will continue to closely monitor developments in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest information about City, University of London’s response to the pandemic can be found on the students and visitors page.

At such time as face-to-face meetings may become possible again, and depending on the logistics and spaces required to enable full compliance with any social distancing measures, we will aim to provide learning in face-to-face formats once again for those who wish to take up that option. Face-to-face learning would be offered in parallel with our core online offering. We will publish more details of any such developments in due course.

Our staff, consultants and faculty remain dedicated to supporting our clients during this challenging time; please feel free to reach out with any questions or requests to CCE@city.ac.uk
