Founder of Mellor Financial, Martin Mellor, said: “Scotland is currently underserved with this kind of practical no nonsense finance training. With more than 350,000 businesses employing over 1.2 million people, this is something we are keen to address, and Edinburgh was the natural choice to as not only is it the capital city, it is also the beating heart of the Scottish financial sector.
“The course tackles key knowledge gaps we typically see when people without accounting training are required to review and understand accounts. One of our key aims is to take away the use of financial jargon that can really impact people’s understanding and confidence.”
