Public Accounting for Academy Trust Accounting Officers
Those who are designated as the Accounting (or Accountable) Officer for their organisation are answerable for the oversight of the stewarship of public funds, which will result in their being called upon to give an account to Parliament. It is therefore vital that those in these positions hold accountability at the heart of all their working practices. This programme deals with the role of the Accounting Officer, set firmly in the Academy Trust context.
This course is suitable for the Accounting Officer and those supporting them.
The programme runs for approximately 4 ½ hours (including breaks) and is a mix of formal presentation, discussion based on case studies, and video extracts from the Public Accounts Committee. We can run this course on your premises and at a time to suit those attending. This course is suitable for the Accounting Officer and those supporting them.
Go above and beyond your training with new collaborative resources from our partnership with Kogan Page, an award-winning independent publisher of business books and content.
