Internal Audit for Education Organisations

Risk & Assurance

Our team of internal audit specialists have been advising clients operating in the Higher and Further Education sectors on all aspects of internal audit for over fifteen years.

During that time the sector has continued to develop and has become increasingly sophisticated, recognising and identifying how internal audit can be a powerful tool when directed to the areas within an organisation where the service can benefit it most.

We work with audit committees to ensure that their annual plan is focused on the areas where maximum value and benefit can be obtained. We then ensure that the plan is delivered in a timely fashion, and that management are consulted with and agree upon recommendations and actions before we present them to the audit committee.

Our process

The internal audit process must look to ensure that risk is managed but it also considers where best practice may drive efficiencies or add value. Our significant involvement in the sector ensures that we have a wealth of experience which enables us to make suggestions around such improvements.

Our internal audit team has experience of working with both committees and boards around self-assessment of effectiveness. We have facilitated a number of very productive sessions, which generated a significant number of agreed actions, which has improved the operation and effectiveness of the committees involved.
