The Education and Skills Funding Agency have published the 'Academies Financial Handbook 2020'. The 2020 handbook will take effect from 1st September 2020.
One of the key changes in the 2020 handbook includes the requirement for academies and their internal audit programme:-
3.20 Your external auditors can no longer provide your internal audit services (Page 31).
We are continuing to develop and improve our Internal Audit template and have had great feedback from our schools - "the governors and principal have really appreciated the breadth of the programme and have fully engaged with all the areas, it has led to some really interesting and challenging conversations in our governor meetings".
Our comprehensive programme is designed to be delivered over 3 days and is suitable for Primary, Secondary and Multi Academy Trusts. Please feel free to get in touch, we would be happy to discuss your requirements and schedule your first remote session.
