Description Schools are now required to self assess their financial management procedures and controls annually and identify any areas of non-compliance for further action.  The responsibility is placed upon governors who, in conjunction with school leaders and school business managers are left to make judgements about whether the school delivers good value for money and maintains appropriate and safe controls.  This programme helps participants understand the wider process, explores a plan of attack and provides quick tips for good relationships with internal auditors and a successful outcome to the SFVS process.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course is suitable for governors, head teachers, school leaders and school business managers who will be actively involved in the SFVS self-assessment process at all stages. The course will: help you to understand the key requirements of SFVS and the role the Department expects governors to play in its implementation; examine pertinent support documents within the Standard and be aware of how to access other support guidance documents; prepare an action plan to facilitate the delivery of a successful local authority financial assessment and audit; explore ways of completing this important self-assessment effectively and efficiently; and empower participants to work positively with local authority internal auditors and integrate SFVS requirements with those of their internal audit team

Follow-up activities and support The provider has not supplied this information

This course is run by Larraine Cooper who works with senior and middle management to develop a range of business performance management and costing skills to support the delivery of quality services over a medium-term timeframe. She has worked with HE institutions, FE colleges, schools and local authorities. She works with schools through the NAHT financial courses and on a 1:1 consultancy basis, focusing entirely on finance and business aspects of school management serving educational outcomes by resourcing School Development Plan priorities. It would be useful for participants to bring a small and contained initiative they would like to start costing. This will be used in individual work sessions to reinforce learning and to provide an example through which to explore the templates provided to participants for their use on return to the workplace.

This course does not have any pre-booked dates available. Please contact the provider directly to arrange this training.
