Internal Auditors Training for Social Responsibility

This course aims to improve auditor competencies in conducting social audits against international social responsibility standards, with a specific focus on Electronics Industry Standards.

It is the hope that this course will enable learners to sharpen their ability to detect serious breaches and improve their ability to identify social responsibility and labor issues in recruitment and onsite management of workers, in labor outsourcing arrangements, and in complex labor supply chains.
This course was designed with a blended approach to learning, utilizing the following methods:
 
Asynchronous modules – this is a self-study approach to learning that is provided to the learner through online modules. The learner is provided the time and convenience to learn at their own pace through informative presentations, exercises, and downloadable resource materials. 


Synchronous instructor-led sessions – ILT sessions are conducted live through Zoom. During these sessions, the participants are provided access to subject matter experts that will facilitate the learning process. Participants can expect in-depth discussions, real-life practical examples for social responsibility concepts, and group or individual activities.

  • Week 1 – Asynchronous Modules (3 days)
  • Week 2 – Synchronous Modules (3 days, 4 hrs/day)
