Governance Audits are becoming critical in providing assurance to stakeholders that the organization has embraced good governance practices in order to achieve its strategic objectives. The Governance Auditors Accreditation Course is an intensive programme designed to train, refine and accredit Certified Secretaries to competently undertake Governance Audits, Champions of Governance Award Assessments and related assignments for both public and private sectors. At the end of this Course, participants will be equipped with skills and knowledge to assess governance framework in organizations and help organizations put in practice good governance best practices and the principles of good governance. In-house Corporate Secretaries will also obtain relevant knowledge for purposes of preparing their organizations to undergo Governance Audits.
Participants will be issued learning materials and allocated research assignment 5 days before class work begins. Thereafter, 5 days (four and a half hours per day) virtual based training will be delivered through active learning with theories, demonstrations, practice, videos, role plays, reflections and case studies, among other adult learning methodologies. Participants will be expected to have studied the course materials in advance and therefore the virtual classes will be mostly discussions.
