Page 5: Training and development
Every member of staff at the Audit Commission has a personal development plan. Staff may be given on-the-job training in the workplace. This is where training courses and workshops are run for specific events.
They can also get the opportunity to do off-the-job training outside the place of work. The chances the Audit Commission provides for self-development may involve secondments of three to six months with clients, such as local authorities or the National Audit Office. There are also openings for employees to take professional qualifications, such as CIPFA.
The competency-based system and the personal development plan enable employees to take responsibility for their own growth. This means that the area in which they work uses and develops their talents. This results in high-quality output and work.
