Institute lauches online courses

The Institute of Fundraising has created a series of online training courses aimed at people starting out in the profession.

The Fundraising Learning Online initiative, which was due to be launched on 20 November, offers a basic introduction to fundraising and allows participants to complete up to 10 different courses at their own pace.

Users can set up personal profiles to track their progress and an interactive forum provides access to a network of fundraisers who can answer questions. The course does not provide any formal qualification.

Carrick Allison, director of professional development at the institute, said: "It gives new fundraisers the essential knowledge they need to add to their transferable skills," he said. "Obviously we want as many talented people as we can get, and this course will help to give them a step up into the sector."
