Turing Scheme Funding Certification for UK Educational Institutions

The Turing Scheme has opened up incredible opportunities for students across the UK to study and work abroad. As one of the most extensive global programmes, it has seen remarkable participation since its launch in 2021-2022. However, with these opportunities come financial responsibilities and the need for proper auditing and certification of expenditures. Here at Henderson Loggie, we are well-versed in handling these requirements.

The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s global programme to provide funding for international placements across the world. Named after the renowned mathematician Alan Turing, the scheme is designed to provide opportunities for students to gain life-changing experiences by studying or working in various countries. This initiative supports students from schools, colleges, and universities, fostering global understanding and collaboration.

It’s worth noting that the Turing Scheme operates on an academic year basis, running from September 1st to August 31st. This coincides with the typical timeframe for end-of-year audits, making it a timely consideration for institutions currently planning Turing Scheme projects.

Since the inception of the Turing Funding Programme in 2021-2022, Henderson Loggie has been actively involved in auditing and certifying expenditure for institutions participating in the scheme. Our team of expert auditors ensures that all financial aspects of the funding are thoroughly reviewed and certified, meeting the strict requirements set forth by the programme.

For Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) establishments that receive more than £40,000 in funding, a certification of expenditure is mandatory. This certification process involves a detailed examination of all expenditures to ensure compliance with the scheme’s guidelines. We understand the importance of this certification for institutions to continue receiving funding and maintain their good standing with the programme.

One critical requirement of the Turing Scheme is the submission of an annual certificate of funding. This certificate must be submitted alongside the final report within 28 days of the project’s end date. Henderson Loggie has extensive experience in preparing these certificates, ensuring that all documentation is accurate, comprehensive, and submitted on time. Our meticulous approach helps institutions avoid any potential issues or delays in their funding processes.

To highlight our expertise, let’s look at some of our achievements over the past two years.
