The tutor will hold a general “how-to-tackle-the portfolio” section and will cover specific questions within the portfolio which are known to cause problem.

Content of the session
We will begin with a general introduction focussing on how to approach the tasks:  to help new candidates, and refresh the memories of those who have already attended. Candidates will be expected to have read and absorbed the introduction (Setting the Scene) in the portfolio guide

Thereafter the sessions will concentrate on 

  • Unit 3: Finance for Local Councils 
  • Unit 4: Management for Local Councils

There will also be time to raise individual queries

The session will be led by Rosalind Bolton
