Members Training

Decision Maker: Audit and Risk Management Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Finance reported that the CIPFA guidance ‘Audit Committees – Practical Guidance for Local Authorities’ recommended that the Members of an Audit Committee should receive specific training in their role and responsibilities as Members of that Committee. He commented that since 2006 the training requirements had been comprehensively achieved at minimum cost by the appointment of Anna Klonowski, who was one of the members of the working party that wrote the CIPFA guidance. The training course had previously been supplied over two sessions at a cost of £2500 and, to date had been viewed by Members of the Committee as very useful.


Resolved – That the existing trainer, Anna Klonowski, be retained for Members Training in 2012/2013, the first training session to be arranged early in the new municipal year, before the first scheduled meeting of the Committee in June 2012.
