Course Overview

Public bodies and many other organisations in receipt of public support must insure that their standards of corporate governance are of a high standard and that they are in compliance with specified corporate governance codes. This course will give insights into the principles on which codes are based, provide an overview of the key issues for the different stakeholders and discuss the implications of how governance practices can be assessed.

The course will provide a valuable introduction for staff, senior management and members of boards/governing bodies to the implications and the benefits which arise from good governance. It will look at the different sides of reporting governance - whether as an agency reporting or the assessment responsibilities of a Government department. In dealing with case examples the experienced tutors will facilitate an interactive approach with the intention of discussing particular contexts of most relevance to participants.

The most widely applied code to public bodies is the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (Department of Finance). This course pays particular attention to the key topics in that Code while referring to example where differences may apply.

Who should take this course

This course is aimed at Senior and Middle Level Managers from the public sector and civil society organizations. The course is also beneficial for those working in bilateral and multilateral organizations, diplomatic missions and those managing development projects financed by development partners.
