Internal Audit

We have had a thoroughly professional, friendly and helpful service from Icca Education Training and Skills and I cannot recommend them highly enough for theor proactive approach and quality of work.

Marting Harrison, Principal and Chief Executive, Dearne Valley College

Icca Education Training and Skills have provided a flexible professional and responsive service as internal auditors.  They have a particular strength in curriculum efficiency and effectiveness work.  This is closely aligned with an in depth knowledge of funding and compliance issues. I would also commend their work around financial controls and risk management.

Maximising your Funding Claim

The College data was telling me that there might be a shortfall in the achievement of our adult allocation.  Having worked with Icca Education Training and Skills over a number of years and on other projects we decided to let them have a look at our funding claim.  This was to support our hard pressed CIS staff who at the time simply had not got the time!  It made perfect sense as the potential cost was a small percentage of whatever was additionally found - and nothing if we were already maximising our funding claim.

Whilst the Icca review found less than 1% of unclaimed funding this was worth £100,000 to the College which was a welcome bonus.

I would recommend the review to any college who needs the reassurance that they are claiming for everything to which they are entitled.  After all - you only pay a proportion of additional funding identified, which you wouldn't be claiming for anyway, and so it's a win-win situation.

Getting Ready for Inspection!

Icca Education Training and Skills have provided the College with a range of consultancy services which have proved invaluable.  They recently supported the College in the development of a detailed analysis of student success data which has enabled the College to use it effectively both for internal self assessment and our Ofsted Inspection. 

Icca Education Training and Skills have also used their considerable expertise to enable the College to maximise claims for Additional Learning Support and Adult Funding.

At a time when colleges are looking closely at the appropriateness of spend on external consultancy it is clear that Icca Education Training and Skills provided the College with significant and tangible added value.
