Advanced Apprenticeship in Fundraising
How would your organisation’s sustainability increase if you had someone trained in up to date skills tailored to meet your funding needs?
With the very significant cuts in public money and increased competition for other funding sources, many charities and other voluntary sector organisations face very uncertain futures. It’s never been more critical for charities and other voluntary sector organisations to have someone with practical fundraising skills in the team.
The Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Fundraising has been developed by Skills – Third Sector, the organisation working to make sure that charities and social enterprises have the right people with the right skills, in collaboration with sector professionals. It is endorsed by the Institute of Fundraising – the professional body for fundraisers.
This Advanced level Apprenticeship (the equivalent to 3 A-levels) will develop the skills, knowledge and understanding in key areas that fundraisers need to be good at – developing and implementing a fundraising plan, and monitoring and sustaining relationships with donors. In addition, Apprentices can specialise in at least two of these areas:
- Local and community fundraising
- Fundraising events
- Legacy fundraising
- Corporate fundraising
- Grant income generation
- Major gift fundraising
- Fundraising through electronic media
- Direct marketing media
