Newbury recognised for its commitment to learning and development

Following a recent assessment, Newbury Building Society has been successful in achieving re-accreditation by the Financial Services National College (FSNC) for its provision of training and development, for a further two years.  

The accreditation acknowledges the Society’s commitment to developing its employees via a range of initiatives including in-house development programmes, digital learning and knowledge management solutions, and sponsorship of professional qualifications.  

After the assessment, an FSNC Associate commented that “the training and development provision at the Society is of a very high standard. The quality of information provided by the HR team is a testament to their commitment and passion.” 

The Society has a collaborative approach to learning and development. Programmes such as ‘Train the Trainer’, ‘Thinking Like Customers’ and ‘Emerging Talent’, to name a few, have been designed to ensure employees have the necessary skills to support the organisation’s strategic goals while supporting personal professional development.   

Anne-Marie Goldsmith, HR Manager at Newbury Building Society said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with the Financial Services National College. Maintaining and developing skills and knowledge throughout the Society is key to ensuring great customer outcomes and achieving our overall business strategy. The accreditation is an external endorsement that we provide our people with the tools and support to enable them to reach their full potential.”  

The FSNC was set up to advance standards of training excellence in the financial services sector.
