CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD)

The professional world has become not only dynamic but also very competitive. Significant changes and challenges can be observed in the environment and more specifically in the regulatory background within which the Certified Secretary must operate. To keep in pace with these changes and challenges, the CS has to continuously update and also increase his/her knowledge so as to be current in all aspects of his/her professional career.


The Institute of Certified Public Secretaries of Kenya has a duty to its members and the public at large, in ensuring that the highest standards of professionalism are maintained by its members and this is done through the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programmes in this Calendar.  Every member of the Institute is expected to actively participate in the programmes and functions and attain the
minimum CPD credits required. The CPD Credits are in two categories; structured and unstructured. The unstructured credits are earned from activities of other recognized institutions while the structured credits are earned from activities and functions that are organized by the Institute. In this calendar of events, the members are offered a variety of programmes, comprising of a variety of programs, from which to attain the required CPD credits. For the year 2014, every member is required to attain a minimum of twenty (20) structured units and ten (10) unstructured.

Governance Audits are becoming critical in providing assurance to stakeholders that the organization has embraced good governance practices in order to achieve its strategic objectives. In the recent past, the legal and regulatory framework in Kenya has recognized the important role of Governance Audit as evidenced below:

  • The Companies Act, 2015 makes it mandatory for all Quoted Companies to annually assess the extent to which they observe corporate governance policies and strategies.
  • The Code of Corporate Governance Practices for Issuers of Securities to the Public 2015 as gazetted by the Capital Markets Authority requires the Board to subject the company to an Annual Governance Audit by a competent and recognized professional accredited for that purpose by ICPSK.
  • Mwongozo, the Code of Governance for State Corporations in Kenya, requires State Corporations to carry out an Annual Governance Audit by a member regulated by ICPSK and accredited for that purpose. Likewise,
  • ICPSK Code of Corporate Governance for Private Organizations in Kenya also calls for Annual Governance Audits.

 

The Council of the Institute is in discussions with potential partners for purposes of promoting the practice of Governance Audit both locally and outside Kenya. Through a consultative process the Institute has developed comprehensive training materials including participants’ workbooks, a Governance Audit Manual, Governance Audit Tools and Standards, and Trainers’ Guidelines to ensure quality Governance Audit processes and programmes. In view of this, the Institute has designed this course to train, refine and accredit its members as Governance Auditors to competently undertake Governance Audits and related assignments for both public and private sectors. The accredited Governance Auditors will also conduct ICPSK COG Award assessments.

 

This five days course will therefore equip participants with skills and knowledge to assess the governance framework in organizations and help organizations put in practice the principles of good governance. The Course will also be most ideal for in-house Corporate Secretaries who would require the knowledge for purposes of preparing their organizations to undergo Governance Audits.
