Hello everyone,
I need a basic outline on how to prepare a "training budget". It would be great if following points are covered in it -
1. how to allocate fund for training activity
2. process of getting budget approval
3. how to consider both internal as well external training while preparing the budget.
I already have the training calendar & plan prepared for the financial year & approved by the management. The only thing I'm unable to understand is how to prepare the budget and present it in front of the management. Can anyone share some format for the same.
Thanks in advance !

Dear Nishant,
When you got the training calendar approved, that time itself you should have approved the budget. In fact, what is the use of training calendar without budget?
Now based on the calendar, you need to find out for how many training programmes can be conducted with in-house trainers and how many would need external trainers. Again the charges of the external trainers depend on the type of the training programme. Addition to this is expenditure on account of hiring the hotel (if conducted outside), training material charges, stationery charges etc
Therefore, you will have to do lot of spadework as this is going to be a long drawn exercise.
