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.

CPD is concerned with systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge, skills, personal qualities and professional ethics necessary for execution of professional and technical duties throughout the CS’s working life. The overall aim of CPD is to develop and enhance the value of the CS as a professional. 

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 OR by other independent institutions accredited by the ICPSK. Currently, the only accredited institution to offer structured CPD Programmes is the Institutional Consultants Limited. 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 this year, every member is required to attain a minimum of twenty (20) structured units and ten (10) unstructured.

The Business Registration Services (BRS) Board has been automating the Companies Registry with an aim of enhancing efficiency in service delivery. However, the automation has significantly affected operations at the Registry and consequently users of the Registry, most importantly the work of CS practitioners. The system-related technicalities are better addressed in a forum, where the Technical Experts from BRS, get an opportunity to address such challenges on a case by case basis.

The objectives of this workshop which will be facilitated by BRS are:

  1. Training the CS Practitioners on the use of the online system for various services
  2. Highlight expectations of BRS on CS practitioners.
  3. CS Practitioners to give their feedback to BRS on the online system
  4. CS Practitioners to give recommendations for improvement of services at  the Registry.
  5. Provide an avenue for interaction between CS Practitioners and officers from BRS

There is a movement of corporate reform taking place globally recognising the increasing importance stakeholders, not just shareholders, in the business of the company. Many shareholders regard their investment purely as a tradable commodity and delegate full authority to the directors to operate the business. They do not hold directors to account for their actions and, beyond their own financial return, have little interest in the underlying business of the company or its impact on stakeholders including staff, suppliers, customers and the wider society.


This has led to a decline in corporate ethical standards, opaque reporting to conceal actual company performance, sudden collapse of corporate titans and financial crises. Where CSR projects are started out of broader concern they often fall short of fostering strong bonds with the many stakeholders who rely on the business for their jobs or livelihood.

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.
