Since our inception in 2001 Course Academy has been providing professional training services to the banking industry, covering a very broad range of IT and personal development courses.

The banking and finance industry in the UK forms a very important part of the overall economy employing huge numbers of staff who work in a diverse range of roles. Course Academy is perfectly placed to provide the training needed to not only support personnel within their existing roles but also to give them the knowledge and expertise needed to progress through the organisation.

All our courses are focused on providing knowledge in specific and finite areas and therefore, courses will typically run over 1- 5 days in duration with the course day structured from 9-5pm. Broadly speaking our portfolio consists of two main areas; Information Technology and Personal Development (also referred to as soft skills). Many of the banks and financial sector businesses that we work with will choose to send their delegates onto existing open training courses running at various centres placed conveniently around the UK, however, around 60% of our business is made up of courses that we deliver at the customers location.

Onsite In-house training for the finance and banking sector
Course Academy are experts in the delivery of training courses conducted onsite in-house at customer locations around the UK. With in-house training delivery we are able to customise course content to the client’s exact needs. Onsite in-house training also eliminates the need for delegate travel and accommodation so depending on the numbers of attendees, this delivery method can be extremely cost effective when compared to sending a group of delegates to open enrolment courses.

We work seamlessly with many of our banking customers internal learning and development functions. We aim to become an inherent part of the training team so that customer ethos and branding is cohesively integrated as part of the overall service delivery. By working together we can more easily achieve our combined goals. Our team of training experts have years of experience behind them working with a very broad and diverse customer base so they are perfectly placed to add real value to your current training team.

We started in Information Technology training so we have now built one of the most comprehensive ranges of IT technical training portfolios in the UK and our knowledge is second to none. Much of our work now revolves around Cloud deployment, design and integration. Our trainers are complete experts in the field of web based technology so you can rest assured that if you work with us you will get the results you want in time and on budget.
