HMRC’s international tax training programmes are open for applications
HMRC is running two international training and development programmes for senior managers and tax auditors.
The programmes, which are run by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on behalf of the Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators (CATA), begin in mid-April 2015 and include both online and residential elements.
Custom designed for senior managers and tax auditors, the programme is broken down into two courses:
Achieving Leadership Potential (ALP) – a leadership and management programme which is designed for leaders or managers already in a senior position, or those with the potential to reach the highest levels in their organisation
Commonwealth Tax Auditors Course (CTAC) - a programme for auditors and inspectors who are involved in investigation work, and for officers involved in audit or compliance work. It will be of most benefit to those who have experience in compliance work and are seeking to enhance their investigation skills, or who are involved in the training or management of new appointees in this field
What do the programmes involve?
The courses begin in mid-April 2015 and are in two phases:
Online learning via email with the course director over 14 weeks
Six weeks UK-based residential training from 27 July
Please read the course brochure for additional information and to ensure that you are applying for the most relevant course. The programmes have welcomed delegates from many African, Asian and Caribbean countries, though delegates from non-Commonwealth countries are welcome, subject to availability of places.
Please note that attendance on these courses must be funded by your own administration.
The application process
The deadline for applications is Friday 13 March 2015.
