Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Who can join?
The programme is for anyone with a working knowledge of finance and operations in start-ups and small businesses.
We must be convinced that you are able to commit sufficient time and energy to the course to make the most of the training and to be an active participant in group activities.
How much time do I need to commit each week?
To get the most out of the course you will need to commit 6-8 hours across the week. Apart from the live sessions, the rest of the work is flexible and is completed at the times that suit you best.
Please let us know upfront if you would like to join the School of FinOps but cannot commit to all of the live sessions. The live sessions are set by default to 6-8pm GMT, but once the cohort has been finalised we will consult on this.
You’ll find it easiest if you can arrange a day off each week to complete the training with your employer. This is not a requirement as it is possible to complete the course in the mornings and evenings.
How long is the course?
The programme will commence on 3rd February 2021 and end on the 14th April 2021.
Can I do the course remotely?
Of course! But we do ask that you ensure that you are able to attend all of the live sessions, which are by default set to 6-8pm GMT. If you cannot make one of the live sessions please let us know and we’ll make alternative arrangements.
A significant part of the course involves working in small groups with other students. As the majority of the participants are in Western Europe you should consider your ability to attend meetings during normal hours for this time zone.
Can I do the course at my own pace?
Unfortunately not. As the course involves live sessions and group challenges it must be taken as part of a cohort. We believe that this cohort structure greatly outweighs the limitations: as in a real business environment you will learn to manage projects with colleagues and you will leave with a new peer network.
Who are the tutors?
All of our tutors are FinOps experts working in UK start-ups, and are graduates of earlier iterations of the same course.
The lead tutor is

How much does it cost?
The February cohort is a part of our initial launch series. This means that groups are limited to half the normal size (ten rather than twenty) and it is charged at half price (£600 including VAT rather than £1,200 including VAT).
We anticipate that the majority of participants will be able to claim the course cost as a company expense from their employer. We also offer an interest free payment plan of £100 a month.
What is the scholarship programme?
We reserve a minimum of one place in each cohort as a free scholarship place. This is available to students who show outstanding promise but who would be unable to otherwise access the training. For the application form email
