Routes to Chartered Status
Responding to feedback from students and employers, we have launched a professional qualifications framework that focuses on giving firms and individuals the skills and capability they need to perform well in today’s financial services industry.
You can study for qualifications that are directly relevant to your current role as well as progressing towards recognised Professional
and Chartered designations as your careers develop. Teaching and assessments are flexible to fit around busy work commitments and timescales. The framework aligns with apprenticeship standards in financial services.
Whether you are new to the sector, looking to enhance your technical and specialist knowledge or an experienced professional, the framework will support you through every career stage. Your learning will ensure you develop the knowledge, skills and competence you need to excel.

The framework includes a suite of new qualifications in banking and finance which replace our higher education programmes in Banking Practice & Management.
Under the transition phase, existing modules from these programmes are available to study with the credits counting towards the requirement at the relevant stage (Professional and Expert). The module credits are validated within the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ). A schedule of qualification development is underway to validate these HE modules as qualifications in their own right.
