ABCUL Academy reaches 600 users
07 Dec 16
The ABCUL Academy – ABCUL’s new comprehensive training suite for credit unions – has signed up more than 600 users since it was launched in March.
The ABCUL Academy brings together an industry-leading Learning Management System and compliance content with credit union-specific modules to provide a modern, reliable training offer to credit unions that can be accessed whenever and wherever suits the user.
Recognising that nothing ever stands still in the world of credit unions and compliance, the ABCUL Academy is frequently refreshed with new relevant content to help credit union personnel of all levels of experience keep up to date with the latest developments and best practice.
A number of new courses and reference materials have been added to the ABCUL Academy over the last few weeks.
A new course on Culture and Ethics examines the role of culture in a regulatory environment, which includes the organisation's vision, values and norms. It looks at how culture provides unwritten and often unspoken guidance for how to get along in the business and how it affects the way people and groups interact with each other, with members, and with stakeholders.
A new course on Lending Policy in a Credit Union supports credit unions in putting in place a robust lending policy and will provide guidance on commercial considerations and compliance with regulation whilst maintaining the ethos that underpins all credit union operations.
A range of new case studies have also been added to help credit union staff, directors and volunteers understand how the Financial Conduct Authority’s Conduct Rules apply in various scenarios.
Each of the new case studies consists of a PDF document which describes a fictitious scenario for learners to study, followed by a series of multiple choice questions to check their knowledge of how the Conduct Rules apply to each job-role family.
The ABCUL Academy is exclusive to ABCUL members and costs just £55 per individual user per year. All Academy courses – including these new ones and more to be added throughout the year – are included in the annual fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
