After going through the exercises business owners will find themselves with a better understanding of how and why they need to understand their financial data and what it can tell them about their business. We expect users will benefit immediately from what they learn from completing the self-learning programmes.

Why should I upskill in Financial Literacy?

Financial literacy is the foundation of your relationship with money, and it is a lifelong journey of learning. You will learn;

  • How to read financial statements
  • Improve your financial decisions,
  • Assess your profitability,
  • Know the net worth of your company
  • The importance of a cash flow projection
  • Your tax obligations.

When can I do it/how long does it take?

Skilly is for self-learners who are busy but want to learn new skills. You can complete it in your own time, at your own pace. Allow 8-10 hours to complete each module over 2-3 weeks.
As part of the programme a Financial Specialist mentor will review your answers and feedback. Three hours of individual one-to-one mentoring is also included
