London, England

The programmes, which are run by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on behalf of the Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators (CATA), begin in May 2014 and include both online and residential components.

Specifically tailored for senior managers and for tax auditors and inspectors, the courses include:

Achieving Management Potential (AMP) – a leadership and management programme which is designed for managers already in a senior position, or those with the potential to reach the highest levels in their organisation. It emphasises leadership, management and strategy in the tax administration context.

Commonwealth Tax Inspectors Course (CTIC) – the programme is for auditors and inspectors who are involved in investigation work. This course is ideal for officers involved in audit or compliance work, or their trainers. It will be of most benefit to those who have some experience in compliance work who are seeking to enhance their investigation skills, or those who are involved in the training or management of new appointees in this field.

Who can apply?

CATA programmes are created with Commonwealth member countries in mind but delegates from non Commonwealth countries are welcomed, subject to availability of places.

In recent years the programmes have welcomed delegates from a host of African and Asian countries including Tanzania, Kenya, Namibia, Cameroon, Malawi, Pakistan, Malaysia, Ghana, Rwanda, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Botswana and Lesotho.

What do the programmes involve?

  • a carefully structured online preparatory course conducted by email
  • an intensive 6 week residential component held in the UK
  • world class resources accessed through workshops, presentations, seminars and other interactive learning events

The application process

The next AMP and CTIC online programmes start in May 2014, but the application process starts soon – countries will need to secure funding for participants and confirm their names by 28 March 2014.
