ABCUL Academy

ABCUL has developed a package of training to develop the skills and knowledge staff, volunteers and directors need to perform effectively in credit unions. The Academy contains a number of different elements that can be accessed either independently as single modules, or grouped together to form a pathway – dependent on the requirements of the individual.

Modules are designed to develop both strategic and operational skills and includes:

  • Corporate governance
  • Strategic planning
  • Risk management
  • Business planning
  • Internal audit
  • Lending policy and credit control
  • People management and team development

In addition to these, a significant number of regulatory modules are available on topics such as Preventing Financial Crime, Data Protection and Compliance with the Senior Managers Regime.

The training is available on the Learning Management System (LMS) which has various types of eLearning and video based content.

Our training suite is designed to respond to the changing needs and requirements of the British credit union movement.

This LMS allows credit unions to track which of their people have completed each course – and demonstrate this to members and regulators.  Continued Professional Development (CPD) can also be tracked on the Academy.
