Financial Internal Controls and review of the effectiveness of Internal Controls

Tue, 06 Apr 2021 13:15

£22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary

Tuesday afternoon 1.15pm - 2.45pm

All councils, no matter what their size must have internal controls in place; these controls are designed to protect the finances held by local councils. In this session we discuss the appropriate controls and we also look at the mandatory, annual review of the effectiveness of them. Undertaking an effective review, or indeed any review of this kind, may be something that your council has not done in the past. This session is relevant for all councillors and clerks because it deals with duties that all councils must perform.

Managing council employees: How to address Capability - CANCELLED

Tue, 13 Apr 2021 13:15

Cost £22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary

Tuesday afternoon - 1.15pm - 2.45pm

Capability refers to an employee's ability to perform the work expected of them to the required standards. A council's employees are generally its most valuable (and most expensive) asset so, it is important that the council ensures that work is being performed as it should be and what action it should take if standards are not met.

This short, interactive session provides guidance and the basic tools for councils to ensure compliance with the law and best practice in addressing matters related to capability (i.e. an employee's skill, aptitude, health or any other physical or mental quality in relation to the job that they are employed to do)
