About the course
The Finance Skills: Risk Management and Assurance course considers how risks are identified, managed and reported in public sector organisations.
It also explores the concept of assurance in demonstrating effective governance, as well as the main sources of assurance provision, plus the risks involved in changing delivery models.
It can be taken on its own or as part of the Diploma in Finance Skills for Public Sector Managers.
On completing the course, you will:
- understand risk management models and processes
- understand the risks associated with changing delivery models and how these can be mitigated
- understand how organisations obtain assurance on risk management and corporate governance arrangements.
Who is it aimed at?
The course is designed primarily for those who have no formal qualifications in finance or accountancy but who, as part of their job roles, need to understand robust governance.
It is ideal for those who manage a budget or cost centre as part of a non-finance role in the public sector.
How is it delivered?
The course is available as e-learning and can be delivered in-house.
In-house training is especially cost-effective for organisations interested in training a number of individuals or whole teams.
How long will it take to complete?
The course will take around four hours to complete.
There is no assessment for this e-learning if you are completing it on its own and not as part of the full Diploma in Finance Skills for Public Sector Managers.
