ICAEW Academy were asked by Barclays to create a bespoke programme to support staff in their transition from working at a big four accountancy firm to working within the Barclays finance team. The aim was not only to support this transition but also to develop resilience and confidence to ensure success in a career at Barclays.
“ICAEW hosted a ‘Transition from Practice to Industry’ course for the Qualified Accountant Rotation Programme," explains Victoria Balmer, Global Finance COO Team, Barclays.
"This course was specially designed to help colleagues explore how to deal with tough situations when operating in a business environment and explore the psychology of transition and ways to develop resilience and confidence to succeed in a career at Barclays."
Victoria confirms: "The programme was extremely well received by colleagues, providing them with time to reflect on actions made in the past, while building strong decision-making skills for the future.”
Through a combination of leadership theory, practical techniques and peer learning, this course teaches how to identify opportunities to enhance your leadership effectiveness and to increase your own, and your team’s resilience. CPD hours: 6
