Education and Training

Education & training forms the second pillar of the Compliance & Assurance Framework. There are two elements to this:

1) Formal compliance training requirements

Ensuring we understand any formal compliance training requirements, by job role, through robust training needs analysis. Who needs training? What kind of training? How often?

2) Robust staff induction and appropriate communication of changes to policy / process / guidelines over time

Ensuring we understand which university policies, COPs, SOPs and any other documents detailing "how" we ensure compliance are relevant to which people and that individuals have an understanding of any specific responsibilities associated with their job role and changes to this over time.

Is this pillar implemented in my area of compliance?

We're also keen to know more about anything you find difficult to implement here at Warwick and seek to support you if there are any institutional barriers to doing any of this effectively.
