Alongside the governors / VCE session James Aston is running on Thursday 24 June 2021, he is running a session for members of audit committees (other governors, members of VCE welcomed).
For those familiar with the ‘old style courses’ that James ran (Audit Committee Breakfast Seminars), the session for governors is the front half and the session for audit committees is the back half. These are two discrete and complimentary sessions and will be updated to the morning of delivery (sometimes HE moves at quite a pace).
This updated session for HEI audit committee members, clerks (and interested governors / members of VCE) will run as a webinar at 9.00am on Wednesday 19 May 2021. The session will be 45 minutes followed by a 15 minutes questions and answers session.
It will incorporate the changes to both the CUC Code and the CUC ‘Higher Education Audit Committees Code of Practice’ and changes to ongoing conditions of registration from the OfS.
James will draw on his extensive sector experience, unpacking the Code and looking at best practice from both a principles and delivery perspective.
These sessions have been running for over 15 years and will appeal to both longstanding committee members as a reminder and update on current practices and to new members as a great introduction (albeit at some pace).
