Developing your Focus

In-House Training


Professional accountants play key roles in a variety of public service organisations. These roles extend beyond the perceptions of an accountant. This workshop will focus on personal development of the individual, supported by evidence gathered from colleagues through a 360 feedback, alongside a self-assessment activity.


The content, which can be tailored to organisational needs, is principally focused on how professional accountants and public service professionals can drive sustainable organisational success, and draws on the fundamental principles reflected in the CIPFA Statement of Professional Practice.

1. The initial assessment stage involves gathering evidence from colleagues and completion of a self-assessment. 

2. The second stage is the review of a personal report, which is presented in a development workshop. Participants are guided through their interpretation of the evidence.

3. The final stage is to use the support provided in a “safe” workshop environment, to develop an action plan for the participant’s next career steps. 


The workshop will enable you to:

  • Use feedback and self-assessment to identify current strengths and development areas
  • Explore your key skills and prioritise development areas
  • Develop a vision of career next steps
  • Create an action plan to support career next steps


The workshop is targeted at small groups, or individuals, who are looking to consider their own personal development, with a focus on challenging attitudes and perceptions and creating a selfdevelopment plan. 


The programme is initiated by online assessment. This is followed by a face to face, or online workshop. The workshop content is flexible, allowing a tailored approach to suit individuals and their employing organisation. The workshop can be delivered in one or two days, depending on the tailoring requested, and the size of the group.


This training can be provided remotely and is therefore available during the coronavirus pandemic.
