INTERNAL AUDITING

Time:

10 am - 12.30 pm

Every local council must have an internal auditor: someone who is independent of the management of the council and competent to carry out the role.  This role has become significantly more important for ‘exempt’ councils: those with a turnover under £25,000. 

Date:

Friday, 14 January 2022

Venue:

Held online

Tutor:

Luisa Cantera

Cost:

£49 - there is no discount for subscribers

Course content

Background/overview of internal audit

Scope of the internal auditor

A suggested approach to internal auditing

Arranging and reviewing internal audit


All attendees will receive two helpful template documents: a checklist to send to the council ahead of the internal audit and an example report format.


The tutor is an experienced clerk with many years of successfully undertaking internal audits.


This course is recommended for: 

Clerks and councillors who would like to start internal auditing other councils 

Current internal auditors who would like to keep abreast of the latest changes to your role 

A clerk/financial officer who would like to understand the role of the internal auditor better

Notes:

We'll send you a link via email a day or two before the session is due to be held, so you can just click on the link to join in. You'll need a laptop, tablet or smartphone with a camera; if you haven't tried this technology before that's fine - we'll happily conduct a quick test session with you the day before if you like.

Comments from our most recent internal audit courses:

Super, as usual, from Norfolk PTS :)

Excellent, it has given me the confidence to become an internal auditor for other local councils.

Courses with Luisa are always relaxed and informative, and this was no exception.

Very informative and useful. I believe my own council will benefit by my increased skill and knowledge. I will definitely consider this role.

Thought provoking and getting me thinking of links from a checklist to the financial risk assessment.

Many thanks for the handouts and for delivering such a brilliant course.

The training content was pitched at the right level of knowledge of the people attending.

As usual, a very informative session with great content.

Very interesting event with a steep learning curve for a councillor however it has encouraged me to go further.

Excellent and worthwhile!
