Course outline

The diagram provides a pictorial summary of the 12-month program for this graduate level course. Working closely with employers, we will train apprentices across the main areas of the wholesale banking industry. The objectives of this programme are:

§

To provide an integrated, coordinated and effective training programme

§

To embed the employer’s culture into the approach and examples used

§

To encourage interaction between students, teamwork, and how to facilitate the building of a network across cultural and business divisions

§

To ensure a sound knowledge of fundamental concepts

§

To give delegates the ability to apply theory to practice – to fix knowledge in delegates’ minds and to build solid foundations to support later learning

§

To introduce the range of fixed-income, equity, and commodity products, their uses and applications

§

To present a clear explanation of derivative products, their benefits and risks

§

To demonstrate how banks apply the concepts and products to their business

§

To ensure that all concepts are put into immediate practice, using simulation and intensive interactive case studies, to consolidate the learning process

Each module features frequent quizzes, plus a detailed end-of-module examination. We will track delegates’ progress through the modules, plus their scores in end-of-module examinations, to ensure that everyone has successfully completed the preparatory work. Any delegates falling behind on their pre-course preparation will receive automated emails reminding and encouraging them to keep up progress.
