New FSI Small Charity Sector Scholars Programme – first to offer fundraising qualification developed by Skills – Third Sector
The Foundation for Social Improvement (the FSI) have today announced the individuals chosen to participate in a new professional and personal development programme for rising stars in the small charity sector, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to access similar learning programmes due to the prohibitive costs often involved.
Central to the programme is the Edexcel-accredited Level 3 Award in Fundraising Practice delivered by the FSI. The FSI is the first organisation to offer this practical, sector-recognised qualification, which has been developed by Skills - Third Sector.
The FSI’s Scholars programme provides strategic training and mentoring over 12 months across all aspects of fundraising and charity practice and governance, designed to kick start development opportunities for individuals working in the small charity sector.
Keith Mogford, Skills - Third Sector chief executive says:
"Initiatives to support training for small charities are always welcome. The fact that this programme also recognises the value of a professional qualification in fundraising is doubly good news."
