PwC’s Academy is a training and development concept created by PwC for all those who wish to keep up-to date with current professional developments and modern practices.
PwC's Academy is the platform through which PwC channels its long-standing commitment towards promoting technical expertise and professional development. It aims to be the vehicle through which individuals acquire the skills and aptitudes they need to build rewarding careers and realise their full potential. PwC’s Academy offers a varied training programme that includes a mix of technical, business and IT skills. Sessions go beyond theory and aim to be as practical and business-oriented as possible.
The Academy also seeks to transform its expertise into dedicated training projects by providing in-house solutions driven by client needs and by providing industry-focused training sessions. The Academy’s target audience includes, but is not limited to, accounting, tax and auditing practitioners. With its suite of business and IT courses, the Academy caters for professionals from all other sectors. In 2014, PwC was licenced by the NCFHE as a Higher Education Institution (Licence No: 2007-TC-004).
PwC’s Academy aims to give a training and development service focussed on learning, networking and sharing of knowledge. Reflecting its day-to-day commitment to quality, the Academy provides a distinctive service by translating PwC’s expertise and specialisation into relevant and innovative learning and development programmes that will also cater for specific industries and for client needs. Drawing on the knowledge and experience of PwC partners and staff members, the Academy fosters internally and externally, a firm-wide culture of learning and development.
The Academy’s trainers are carefully selected. The Academy insists that technical expertise must be coupled with excellent instructor skills to create impact, to share knowledge and to make learning stick. Trainers are therefore meticulously chosen based on their knowledge of the subject and their proven track record, as well as on their experience in training and group animation. PwC’s Academy envisages that the quality of its trainers is one of its key success factors. It is the PwC trainers, all experts in their respective fields, who make the link between theory and practice in a way that maximises the return on investment for participants in terms of time and cost.
The Hub is a 2,000 square metre premises over 4 floors which goes beyond facilitating traditional sharing of knowledge in a classroom style. It lends itself to provide collaborative and creative zones that nurture innovative thinking, an executive area that focuses on re-imagining the future of business; learning zones that encourage sharing of experiences and best practices, and an experience hub that embeds the dynamism and agility required in today’s changing world.
The PwC's Academy concept has been growing since its inception in 2010. The Academy today offers blended learning solutions tailored for clients’ needs in areas of Business and IT and therefore this Innovation Centre will also assist clients to reach out to PwC to co-create business innovation, strategy and execution.
Business and IT programmes can be exclusive to the organisation requesting them and will follow an in-depth training needs analysis that we carry out with you. Easier adaptation to the organisation’s working environments, addressing specific issues and focusing on the needs of a homogenous group are just some of the benefits.
