Professional Banker - a new badge of excellence

Professional Bankers are recognised for their banking knowledge, customer focus and professionalism and benefit from an enhanced status within the industry.

Congratulations to our 2015 graduates

 

One of our highlights every year is our graduation ceremony. We love seeing our members rewarded for their hard work and having the opportunity to celebrate their achievement with proud family and friends.

 

This year was particularly significant for us with over 850 graduates from 17 different programmes invited to the conferring. As such, it was the largest graduation in our history and one that needed three ceremonies!

Take a moment to learn more about the ceremonies and have a look at some of our photos from the events.

Digital Banking

  

Has your Christmas shopping this year been only a mouse click away? Will your sun holiday next year be considered and bought online? So much of our retail consumption is now digitally enabled. But how are we in the financial services industry responding to banking in the digital age?

At the start of this year, consultants McKinsey warned that banks have three to five years at most to become digitally proficient. Get the skills and understanding you'll need to be a digitally proficient banking professional with our Professional Certificate in Banking in a Digital Age. This recently developed programme explores the ways in which technology can assist banks and financial institutions to meet the digital challenge.
