Learning and development framework

Learning, development and training

Our people are our most valuable resource as we rely on our highly qualified and professional skills and experience to carry out public audit. We want to be an employer of choice for those who wish to pursue a career in audit and to make a difference to the delivery of public services.

The successful realisation of our mission and the achievement of our objectives are entirely dependent upon our capacity to recruit and retain a highly motivated, experienced and skilled team of staff.

That’s why we place great importance on supporting and investing in the development of our staff as individuals. We want work experience with the Office to be personally fulfilling and career enhancing. An ongoing programme of learning and development assists staff in developing and maintaining the capabilities to deliver high quality products and services.

It is important that staff have the drive and commitment to pubic service and professional values, are trusted for their expertise, are effective at engaging others and can contribute to maintaining a supportive and productive workplace. These are among the keys areas of performance focus which are described in more detail in the Office’s Competency Framework. The Office has a three pronged approach to learning and development:

  • support for the attainment of professional accountancy qualification
  • a training programme aimed at developing core competencies and skills 
  • opportunities for further professional development.
