About this event

As part of CIPFA's commitment to supporting our members, students and the wider public finance profession on ethics, we have developed this short, accessible e-learning module. It is both an invaluable resource bank on ethics and a practical insight into how ethics can impact public finance professionals.

Learning outcomes

The e-learning will:

  • enable you to demonstrate that you have addressed professional ethics,
  • provide a modern understanding of the principles of ethics,
  • provide a practical insight into how ethics can impact public finance professionals,
  • signpost you to additional support on ethics from CIPFA,
  • give you the confidence to follow the behaviours aligned with the SOPP throughout your career as a finance professional.

The e-learning has been developed for CIPFA members and students and refers to the UK public sector, but it will be of interest and value to all public sector finance professionals.

How is it delivered?

The e-learning is delivered online. Detailed joining instructions will be sent to you.
