    If you have a larger group of people who need to develop specific treasury skills and understanding, we can help.

    We can support your corporate treasury team in times of change and when it affects the whole department. For example, when setting up a team we can ensure that those less experienced have a firm grasp of the fundamentals and accelerate advanced skills in those who will be supervising or overseeing activities.

    If you’re from a bank or financial institution, we can help your relationship managers and product specialists by providing them with a better feel for the concerns of your corporate customers and aid their transformation to a trusted advisor.

    Designed for your business

    We’ll develop a programme that is timed to suit your business. Programmes can be long or short depending on the level and amount of content needed and can feature any of the following:

    At the ACT we realise you value the importance of developing your professional knowledge and practical skills. However, to help you do this we thought you might like some ideas to convince your employer or wider organisation as to why you should sign up to an ACT training course, as well as the benefits they will gain as a result of their investment.

    Here’s just a few reasons to help sway your case

    • You will learn how to immediately apply your new practical skills in your everyday role
    • Short courses require a short amount of time out of the office for what will be a long term gain in increasing your productivity in the workplace
    • You will bring back up-to-the minute insights in treasury to your organisation – a useful benchmarking exercise, giving you the advantage
    • Your new knowledge on specific areas of treasury could go a long way to improving business performance
    • If you book early you can make the most of your budget and save 15% off the course fee, so essentially you’re saving the company money – nice!
    • Our courses will help build your confidence and leave you inspired with new ideas on what you can achieve
    • It’s an invaluable opportunity to increase your professional network and share best practice with peers and our expert trainers

    Keep your career moving

    In the workplace, where knowledge is key to competitiveness, it’s essential that you keep yourself and your team up to date with the latest thinking, regulations and trends in treasury management.

    Whatever stage you’re at in your career, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) can help you structure, plan and manage your learning to meet your career goals. CPD is relevant throughout your career as a way to add to your skills, support others and strengthen the profession as a whole.

    With the ACT’s CPD scheme, you’re in control. There are no units to count or hours to complete. Our system is flexible, giving you the chance to develop your skills and apply them to the real world – on your terms.

    A key feature is the ability to track and reflect on your learning through our activity log. This can assist you in demonstrating to your employer that you have been actively developing through the year and is really helpful when it comes to performance management or personal development discussions as it will remind you what you’ve done, what you’ve learned and how you’ve used it.

    You can also use your CPD to plan your career goals and identify new things to learn – explore more at treasurers.org/cpd. And of course our training directory can act as inspiration for the new skills you need and help you pinpoint what to do next.

    Some of our CPD accredited employers include:
