This term students in the final year of the BA Accounting and Finance degree work on an audit of a fictitious company Sheridan AV in the Audit and Corporate Governance module. Last Friday they took part in a practice presentation of their work on the planning phase of the audit to a panel comprising the two tutors (Susan Whittaker and Nicola Horner) who acted as the audit manager and the audit partner. Also on the presentation panel was Leo Hewett who is an Associate Director of Robert Half employment consultants.
Susan and Nicola provided feedback to the students on their technical audit knowledge and Leo gave them instant feedback on their presentation skills.
The intention is that students will be able to consider this feedback before they make their assessed presentation next month. Leo’s feedback will also be helpful for students to consider when interviewing for graduate positions.
