An introduction to the basic principles of risk management in the public sector.

This course has been designed to provide those attending with a basic yet comprehensive understanding of the essential building blocks of the risk management process. 

It is suitable for:

  • Those with responsibility for developing and implementing risk management and embedding effective internal controls within their organisation.
  • Those new to risk management and those who find their traditional role expanding to include responsibility for risk functions.

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • Why formal systems of risk management are needed, including:
    • Definitions, standards, regulatory and governance requirements
    • Key drivers for managing risk in the public sector.
  • How to manage risk, including:
    • Tools and techniques for risk identification and assessment
    • Brainstorming techniques
    • Flow charts
    • Risk bow ties
    • Practical guidance for developing and working with risk registers.
  • How to make risk management ‘work’ for your organisation:
    • Role and responsibilities
    • The importance of monitoring and reporting
    • The ‘business case’ for good risk management.

The training is a mixture of formal teaching and practical exercises using recent real-life case studies. Attendees will be encouraged to discuss their organisations approach to risk management, raise issues and share practical solutions. No prior knowledge of risk management is required, however for the online version of the course there is some pre-course and offline work exercises to complete.

The online course will be delivered via Zoom. Due to the nature of the course, pre-course work will need to be completed prior to attendance and the course information is attached. Please also note that modules 1 and 2 must be taken on consecutive days.

This course is FREE to attend for full members only and priority will be given to named members.
