In a new initiative, the Chartered Banker Institute is accrediting CPD providers to make it easier for banks and financial services organisations to find appropriate suppliers who can deliver high quality learning and career development support.
Talent Q has been accredited to provide six learning modules, covering: Contemporary Strategic Issues in Banking, Effective Delegation Skills, Fundamental Aspects of Banking, Negotiation & Influencing Skills, Talent & Performance Management and Time, Attention & Productivity. Each module can be delivered in-house, as either a half-day or full-day session.
“Chartered Banker status is the gold standard for banking and financial professionals,”
Individual practitioners who want to use the title ‘Chartered Banker’ need to undertake 35 hours of CPD activity each year.
Richard MacKinnon, Head of Learning & Development Solutions at Talent Q, said: “Momentous changes have been forced upon the financial services sector, creating a challenging environment in which practitioners need to think strategically, influence others, manage talent, manage their own productivity and delegate effectively. We’ve created specific learning modules in each of these areas that will help practitioners to improve their performance in their existing role and to prepare themselves for the next step in their career.”
Michele Allen, CPD Manager added: “As the only remaining banking institute in the UK, we have a duty to act in the public interest. By encouraging CPD, and by accrediting CPD providers such as Talent Q, we’re helping to embed the high ethical, professional and technical standards that need to be in place if public confidence in banks and bankers is to be restored.”
Talent Q works with over 500 clients worldwide, including household name financial organisations such as Citi, RBS and Santander. As well as running development programmes, it provides psychometric assessments and consultancy services that help organisations select the best people and develop and retain their staff.
