Full Training and Development Programme

Some of our training courses have not yet restarted. For all current courses, please see our main Training and Development page.


All ICT courses for Local Association Officers are held on a residential basis at Hillscourt Education Centre. Attendance at the courses is restricted to those holding elected positions at Local Association, Federation or national level. There is no course fee and travelling expenses are paid. Please note that special conditions are attached to some courses.

Excel is the spreadsheet application within Microsoft Office. The course covers:

  • spreadsheet design;
  • formatting;
  • basic formulae and functions;
  • printing;
  • graphs;
  • data sorting; and
  • absolute addressing.

Spreadsheets are a useful tool for Local Association Treasurers but their usefulness extends far beyond simple book-keeping.
