In addition to our wide-ranging schedule of briefings and events which are free of charge to members, CEF provides access to a range of programmes and seminars which are available to our members at discounted rates. Full details of these programmes are outlined below:
CEF's Public Accountability and Governance training is tailored to four distinct groups:
Half day sessions are scheduled for each group 2 - 3 times per year. These highly interactive sessions include attendance and input from a representative of the Northern Ireland Audit Office. Delegates receive an overview of the governance framework within which all NI public bodies operate, and will also receive briefing on the latest thinking within Government and analysis and reflection on the most recent case studies.
The Accounting Officer session includes input from the Comptroller & Auditor General, Kieran Donnelly, and the Department of Finance's Treasury Officer of Accounts. Delegates have the opportunity to exchange views with both representatives.
The CEF also offers bespoke PA&G training for individual organisations or sectors, on request. Such training will be tailored to the particular needs of the organisation / sector, with consultation with the trainer on the content of the session in advance.
