Our programme runs throughout the full year, making it is an ideal and convenient CPD solution for practitioners and businesses.

Essentials CPD programme - topics:
Audit and assurance
Focused on compliance and audit quality. Our audit and assurance programme is split into autumn and spring, each focusing on different areas within auditing.
Spring focuses on the behaviours and stakeholder management necessary to thrive in today's rapidly changing auditing environment.
By reviewing ICAEW's propriety film, Without Question - you will leave with a fresh look on scepticism, independence and audit evidence. While this is a different approach to learning, when we showed the previous film, False Assurance to auditors from different backgrounds, it received excellent feedback, some saying that it was the most useful audit course they had ever attended. So far the consensus is Without Question is even better!
For autumn our programme will focus on the latest developments in auditing.
Using practical examples and case studies, the autumn series will help auditors gain a practical perspective on the latest changes and what's hot in auditing. As this is a topical event, the precise content will reflect that.
