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.

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

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 a helpful template which can be used as the internal audit report to the councils you are auditing.

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

Super, as usual, from Norfolk PTS :)

Excellent training.

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, well presented and good to follow.

Informative and clear both from an RFO/Clerk and internal auditor perspective.

Achieved my aims - better understanding - might even consider becoming an internal auditor!

Excellent from the point of view of the clerk and new internal auditor.
