ACCA’s Internal Audit hub provides support to our members working in governance, risk, assurance, control and efficiency (GRACE). The latest edition to the hub is a resource for those moving into Internal Audit. Resources already available include:
making the move from external audit to internal audit
what is internal audit and what does it do?
core skills such as interviewing, designing the test plan, sampling, executing testing, evidence recording and report writing
The content is a mixture of bite-size webinars, brief guides, articles and presentations. We will be adding to the resource over time.
This section explores what internal auditing is like in practice and the many pitfalls to avoid. A series of guides covers internal audit for beginners, the management team, the audit committee and Heads of Internal Audit. New to this part of the hub is a section on evidencing compliance with professional standards.
ACCA UK’s Internal Audit Network regularly runs free webinars for its members working in internal audit. Search here for past webinar series on blockchain and crypto currencies for internal auditors, cyber security, de-mystifying IT audit and GDPR.
This section also has a new Resources by theme area that collates material produced by ACCA in the past few year by the themes of ethics, audit management, IT and regulation/legislation.
If you would like to gain some insight into the life of an internal auditor then look at our blog series “A day in the life of the invisible auditor” where a different internal auditor provided some thoughts every week in 2019.
